If you have a PlayStation 3 unlocked with Custom Firmware , I’m more than sure that one of the most annoying problems you’ve encountered is that when you turn it on, the PS3 fan makes a lot of noise . This is undoubtedly very annoying since it is heard so loud that it influences the gaming experience. But do not worry, you are not alone, it happened to me too and today in MrAppsGeek I will show you how you can solve it in less than 1 minute.
Why is my PS3 fan making a lot of noise?
If the noise of the Ps3 fan is very loud, it is almost certain that it has happened to you after putting a CFW into the console . It doesn’t matter if it’s HEN or Cobra , the fact is that when you turn it on, the fans make a noise that looks like an airplane taking off .
The reason for this deafening noise is because a program called WebMan is installed with the Custom Firmware that gives us full control over the console. This control also applies to its fans .
The fact is that WebMan has the PS3 Fan configured by default so that they work at around 30% (when the console has them at 20% by default). And this is precisely the reason why when you turn on your unlocked PS3 it sounds so loud.
What Is WebMan And What Is It For On PS3?
It is an application that is automatically loaded with the CFW and allows us to have full control of the console. Thanks to this app we have control over:
- Boot menu.
- VSH menu on XMB.
- Speed controller according to system temperature.
- Access to the HTTP network.
- Ability to access the console via FTP.
How to fix PS3 Fat fan makes a lot of noise Step by Step 2023
To silence the noise of the PS3 fans, the first thing we will have to do is start the console and go to the “My Games” section.
Then we enter «WebMan Configuration» .
Then we access the “Ps3 Web Man (Settings)” section .
And then we will tell you 2 different methods to remove noise from PlayStation 3 fans .
How To Remove Fan Noise From PS3 2023 (Method 1)
The first method would be to leave the fan settings that the Ps3 brings from the factory :
- We choose the “SYSCON” option .
- We click on “Save” .
It should be noted that this option is very quiet but it is not recommended since by default it will set the fan to around 20%, which is insufficient to cool the console .
However it is the quietest and is the original FAN configuration of the Sony Play Station 3 .
How To Eliminate Annoying Fan Noise On Ps3 2023 (2 Recommended Method)
This option is the most recommended since it will allow us to use the fans automatically according to pre-established temperature values .
In this way we can activate fans so that the PS3 processor does not heat up more than a certain temperature. This is frankly useful to keep the console cool and extend its useful life .
To configure this mode we will have to do the following:
- We activate the box «Dynamic Control of the FAN » .
- Select the “AUTO” box .
- We set a temperature at which the fans will activate if the processor reaches that amount , for example in my case I don’t want it to exceed 68º.
- We leave the fan in a manual value (optional).
- Finally we save the changes .
In this way, every time the processor reaches a temperature of 68º, the fans will activate for a few seconds to cool the console (they will make noise) and then return to their normal speed (they will become silent).
