I remember I had to overclock a laser on my last PS2 before it broke.

The laser was failing: readjusting the rails wouldn't work, cleaning the lens wouldn't work..

So I had to add voltage to the diode by rotating two variable pots clockwise. That made the thing last for another 2 weeks.

Consoles are a pain I tell you.

Yea, my early ps2 had issues down the line, ironically not the lazer, but the video out x.x But the ps3 is contracted out to ASUS (mobo only i think) and generally seems to be a higher build quality.

I'll give you 2x 120mm fans and an old 250w PSU (all EXTREMELY silent... about 19dBa or so) for 20 quid if you wish to.

Let me know through PM, might be able to kick down the price.

Well it seems soon il make a purchase..so any more comments ?
post #27 of 28
Well suspect you might of already purchased something.I myself have been running folding at home on two PS3/Japanese playstation 3 60gb has been running folding at home for approx 5months with 4months of that on 24*7 with no heat problems.

Wish I could say the same for the Japanese playstation 3 20Gb machine this machine froze after approx 2 months of crunching on and off.So suspected heat problem and purchased a Nyko cooling system which did improve the system for the short term but machine was still unreliable.AND VERY NOISY.

Eventually with the machine being that unreliable I had nothing to loose I dismantled the machine and put some heat compound on the heat sinks.The machine now can be used to crunch again (NYKO cooling not needed)and the internal fan now does speed up so is detecting temp increase but I do have to keep the room temp down or the machine will freeze. Looks to be a GPU heat issue.Saving a small fortune on the gas bill but the electric bill is a different matter.But its for a good cause.

Well I doubt you would do what I did. I basically routed cold air from my air conditioner to my PS3. Check it out here.

Other than that, good luck to your Folding efforts!
