post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi I'm getting the ps3 super slim is there any mods for it like light up fans ect. Like there was on the original slim I'm already replacing the hard drive with HDD with a ssd in it. And also is there any good guides on replacing the CPU paste on it? I whanna put some artic silver 5 on it

i wouldn't recommend opening the super slim as the innards have come a long way from the original ps3 phat. in my opinion i wouldn't replace the cpu paste as i believe it doesn't need it/ could disrupt the cooling performance if done incorrectly.

the ps3 uses a squirrel cage type fan as seen here:

a 3rd party led fan replacement probably doesn't exist.

Why would you put that on your PS3?
I'm putting in a Seagate hybrid which has been known to get hot

the ps3 has a standard 2.5 hdd slot.
you're asking if a 2.5 drive with that cooler on top of it will fit?

no, it will not. what you linked is for 2.5 -> 3.5 slot.

sony has done wonders in terms of cooling and efficiency from the original phat; customizing it is up to you.

also, i doubt the ps3 will be able to use the ssd portion of your hybrid drive and likely will only use the hdd.
don't hybrid drives need drivers to use them in their intended fashion?


nvm apparently it's all done in firmware on the drive.

as i had mentioned before, the super slim is 8 years in the making from the phat, sony has done a lot to further increase efficiency and cooling.
the original phat pushed 320w +, the new super slim barely pushing 150w. if you've got solder skills i'm sure you could add some leds or something but realistically the new super slim is incredibly well engineered.
