I want to know where I could draw power from in the S controller to put a small fan in it to draw air away from my sweaty palms. Should I use the mem card power?

Just tap into the main power

rightmost one is 5v power
leftmost is ground

Just like putting in LEDs, same concept.

is that a pinout of the memcard lines? Yeah I plan to cut holes in the botom sides where my hands ususally are, and make a duct of some sort to draw air away from the slots and blow it out the bottom. That way I could play halo without putting the controller down for anything. cool.gif
regardless, does anyone know of a diagram or picture of the S controller board that has the power points circled or something? I can do this without it but I would like to make a diagram to follow while I am doing the mod.

dont really need a diagram for that, its just the far left is ground, far right is +5v
its pretty straight forward, as there are only 5 connectors on that memory card slot

after doing a 1 sec search on google tho, i found this

When I first read this topic, I said pretty lame idea, but now that I think about it, it's pretty awesome laugh.gif

I might have to "borrow" your idea some day rotfl.gif

Post pics when you get it done

Iím pretty sure this has been done on the original fatty controller you should search for it. The thread might have a little tutorial for it

Hey your sig is kinda odd. Why would your friend blow 200 dollars or more just so he can destroy his Playstation 2? Is your friend spoiled or was he just drunk?
