Description

Keep your PlayStation 3 console running at optimal environmental conditions with the Intercooler slim. The Intercooler slim provides increased air flow away from the PS3 which allows the console to perform in a cooler, better ventilated environment ideal for cramped entrainment centers. No internal modification of the PlayStation 3 is required. The Intercooler?s unique variable fan speed allows you to easily raise or lower the fan speed whether you?re watching the latest BluRay release, or playing the most graphic intensive game. The Intercooler slim is powered by Nyko?s patent pending power pass-through technology, requiring no batteries or USB cables to the console, allowing for a clean and easy installation. The design of the Intercooler slim blends seamless with the design of the PlayStation 3 console, and works in both the horizontal and vertical position.

    Basically, this is a cheap piece of crap.

    Imagine, if you will, your PS3 or PS3 Slim.

    It slopes toward the back, which is a flat rectangular shape, and has input/outputs for power, HDMI, etc.

    Now imagine, if you will, that someone -- Nyko -- produced an aftermarket product to fit this rectangular piece of plastic on the back of your PS3/Slim.

    I would imagine -- and maybe this is just me -- that the product would hug both of the short sides of the rectangle, and thus keep itself firmly in place.

    The design team behind this blunder of product does not share my vision...

    Nyko s Intercooler only has one arm to hug only one side of the PS3. Think of this: hugging someone with just one arm. You don t get a very good grip, and that person is likely to escape your warm embrace.

    Welcome to the Nyko Intercooler. It falls out of place more often than Donald Trump s coif, and while the unit feels heavier -- better built -- than I expected when I ordered it -- and btw, it arrived in a box big enough for a microwave -- this one-arm-hugging system escapes logic and does a lousy job of holding the unit flush to the back of my Slim. This results in the power supply disconnecting from the PS3, and an end to all merriment and good times.

    I don t know what, if any, better options exist, but I actually bought this thing based on several, online recommendations that I read for it, which only leaves me further concerned for the state of cooling accessories available for the PS3 Slim.

    I bought this intercooler about 2 weeks ago since I play for a couple hours straight and bricked my previous 2 60gb launch PS3 s (blurays wouldnt read anymore and ylod). So with this slim I decided no matter how quiet it is I was going to buy a cooling fan when one was available for my 120gb slim. So far its good, despite what the previous review said it fit pretty secure (as long as you dont move the unit around which shouldnt be a problem) and stays flush only thing is you really have to stick the ac plug in really hard to push it all they way in the intercooler. It does make the slim louder put not as loud as my old PS3 s not a big deal, and after awhile if you do put your hand over the fans you can feel all the hot air it spits out. So when it comes to sucking hot air out it is doing its job. The only major problem I had with it was a couple of days later I noticed it wouldnt turn off after shutting down my PS3, I thought I had a defective unit but figured out what was causing it. The problem was I had remote play "on" so I can get my PSP to turn on my PS3 on remotley as long as i had a internet connection, so even though i shut down my PS3 just the fact they wireless connection was still on the unit (evident by the wireless light still blinking when the unit is off) despite the PS3 being shut off it would still keep the fans on. So turning the option back off solved that problem and now the fans shut off when I turn my system off. So if you play for a couple hours straight and want piece of mind I suggest you go and buy this. Four stars for me but 1 star docked for the minor problems of fan not shutting off problem, ac plug hard as heck to plug in, and minor fan noise.
