Tip & How-To about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

How to keep playstation 3 cool and silent

Get 4 ridged foam pads dimensions 4cm by 4cm by 4cm (4cm cubed)

and place the foam pads underneath where the four rubber feet are while the console is horizontal

this will move the ps3 4cm in the air creating more room for the air intake vents on the left side (the side where the hard drive is)

since i have done this my ps3 has been silent while on cross media bar and i mean silent and barely noticeable while playing MW2

how to open xbox case

I recommend prying up the outermost edges of all four rubber feet. Leave the inner half glued on and just fold back the rubber. This will keep the feet attached to the XBox and still allow you to open the case. There are 6 screws, all the same. 4 under the feet and 2 towards the center front and rear under the labels.

This will of course void your warranty, but the XBox warranty period is bpassed, you're on your own anyway.

At Lowes you can purchase foam rubber pads 4"X5" pack of two for $3.50. If walking forward and after cecking level and washer pads are tight, place half of one pad under each of the two front feet. Place the sticky side against washer feet. Solved my problem.

scratched disks

I had the same problem. I purchased a bag of foam rubber with double stick tape. Open the DVD drive and place two foam rubber pads on both the left and right of the inside of the top cover.
