Please help me identify HEAT areas on FAT PS3
Please help me identify HEAT areas on FAT PS3 –
Hi all, I would really appreciate help on the below.
i am working on a cooling MOD for a fat PS3 with heating issues.
I will be removing the stock cooler + heatsink. The sony cooler is the heaviest part of all the ps3.
My idea is to place 2 pentium 4 PC CPU coolers, one on top of the PS3 CPU, and another one on top of the PS3 GPU. However i am trying to find out... what other components will need a big heatsink or cooling.
Below you will find a picture, my main concerns are
# 1 , the IO controller chip, does this chip need a heatsink? or it does not produce heat at all and no heatsink is needed?
#2 The PS2 emotion engine chip. I heard that this cheap DOES produce a lot of heat, and that it needs to be cooled down. I wonder if a PC heatsink + fan is needed for this chip, or a smaller heatsink can do the trick
#4 and #5 , not sure what those are, but do those need a heatsink too? like a memory heatsink?
#3 , of course memory, i will place memory heatsinks all over there to cool those down.
if you know any about this please help me out!
interesting, I will keep an eye on this thread, I ain't git your answer tho mate.
