PS3 inside my PC Case - Page 2

post #11 of 29
I have often thought about this myself... Also, a Wii isn't all that much bigger than a 5.25" bay. Mounting it inside your case and having a multi-platform case?

Only problem is, most ps3 games if not all are capped at 30fps. So other than media streaming or number crunching, an oc wouldn't do me much good. Other than bragging rights of course!

I found a pretty cool website where someone did it, no real instructions or anything. But it would be simple enough to get a decent cooler. I also want to put a SSD in the ps3 as well.

People have tested the ps3 with an SSD installed and there is virtually to no improvement in games unless they are downloaded and ran from the hardrive. But even then the gains are not substantial. I would just get a 7200rpm drive if you want it to be faster since a ps3's normal drive is 5200rpm.

This would be an epic mod. Please do it. If you do, I might incorporate my PS3 into my HTPC.

I work at a really awesome fun toy store and I was helping the Sony rep and the demo ps3 is in a shell with 2 intake fans and 2 exhaust fans.
I don't know if the hardware was made for the case or the case was made for the standard hardware.. If it was though it is possible.

I would be interested in doing this if I found a way to use MY blueray drive.

My ps3 was damaged by a hammer and the drive no longer worked. Everything else is there though.

That would be cool. Doitttt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!@#%#@@!@#^@#%@^

Edit: I wonder if anybody has done this to a wii or xbox. I know there's some way to turn your desktop into a wii though. Forgot where that thread was.

^lol. Ultra gamer rage!


This would be epic in so many ways... but it has to look pretty on the outside.

I like the idea mentioned above about putting a Wii in an expansion bay though.
