Liquid Cooled PlayStation 3 (Fat)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
IS it possible to liquid cool a PlayStation 3 fat, without having to leave the faceplate off? I like the idea of having a quiet, liquid cooled PS3, but with the entire casing on it. I would think closed loop cooling is the best fit. This may mean that only either the CPU or GPU can be liquid cooled, not both.

One issue, The HS that covers the GPU also covers the CPU, So if you done on you would need to do the other as well.

I think you can buy ps3 blocks im unsure.

If not get two coolers n run them in series or get them ones that have cpu n gpu block in one

Well doing both would make sense, its what i'd prefer to do. Honestly, Its just a project i want to do, one I will track down another PS3 fat for, probably the 40GB as it doesn't have the PS2 chips in it to cause more complications. Whichever way its done I just want it to be done in a way so I can close the system back up when done. I was thinking of running one 240mm radiator to 2 waterblocks.
