Here's another schematic. This one still uses the motherboard pulse signal combined with the 555 chip. This way you get to increase the fan speed to a decent rate but the motherboard can also increase the speed if it needs to. All this would be completely unnecessary if Sony just set the damn fans to a decent speed to begin with, but Oh no, they can't make any noise at all so they'd rather let them slowly cook to death!

Hi I was wondering.. Would it possible to just cut the grey wire? Wire nr 3 and then add a resistor to the 12v wire so that It always runs on for example 9v ? Would be hell of a lot easier because of the fact that your method is a bit over my league and that I can't find the right materials in my country smile.gif

You'd need at least a 10 watt resistor if it even worked at all.

Here's another diagram 50% speed without using the LED. This is how I've been doing them recently:

Doesn't matter what kind of cap, both work, pretty much anything under 10uf seems to work. - Neg is going to Pin 1 (ground).

I pulled the adjustable duty schematics. Do not use them, they will most likely have your PS3 running too hot!

USING A RATE LOWER THAN 45% WITH NO MOTHERBOARD CONTROL IS NOT RECOMMENDED !!!!

I discovered fats, especially backward comparable run hotter than I expected!!!

I recommend use the 50% mod and live with the sound.

Have you noticed any change in your method when the system is running 4.0 FW? I used to mod the fan by taking the 3.3v power supply source and cutting the gray wire and running 40k-150k ohms in line. That used to work great up until that last 3 ps3's I have fixed. It will start running the fan @ 50%(ish) and after 5-10 min. the fan will be barely running at all. So my method is out the window. Time to use your method.

I've observed this. It's like Sony WANTS their machines to have a short lifespan.

Anyway, I've made a few interesting discoveries but I'm so bloody disgusted with the PS3 dev scene toward DRM dongles that I'm through with sharing. I really wish I had never posted any of this information.
