    PS3 Playstation 3 Noisy Fan CPU RSX IHS De Lid repair service

    The Playstation 3 (PS3) console under normal operating conditions regulates the fan speed to ensure the optimal operating tenperature of the console.

    The fan speed regulates from 1 - 5, no. 1 being the console idling and not under any load or game play, no. 5 sounds like a jet engine and tihs indicates a problem with your console that needs to be addressed, this would also be followed by the console shutting down.

    A normal console regaultes the fan speed between 1 - 3, this is totally normal.

    The De Lid process is explained below

    We can repair this fault for you, the full repair consists of

    1. Strip down your console and carry out a full service 

    2. We will remove the IHS Plate bonded to the Cell and RSX Chip and apply upgraded Thermal compound before re applying the IHSM plate to both components.

    We do not re bond down the IHS Plate to the Cell after the procedure, meaning replacing the Thermal Compound underneath the IHS plate in the future will be easy for you.

    ** The IHS Plates are Aluminium plates that are bonded to both IC's. These are designed to allow more efficient heat transfer between the Cell and RSX to the Heatsink.

    Highly recommend this company

    I had a fat PS3 that had been butchered by a suppedly reputable console expert after a fan issue - it was so badly butchered that the only solution was a new chipset, new motherboard and a few prayers. Or the bin.
    Despite a massive supply shortage and the odds very much against us, Mark persevered, and I now have a bulletproof PS3 - they were professional, friendly, patient with my endless questions and I would definitely recommend them. I will be using them in future that's for sure!

    Replaced my unit

    My unit was damaged in transit by the courier and Mark at Console Wizard attempted to secure me compensation. I was mortified, it was a day 1 PS3 packed in original box with reinforcement insets and wrapped in strong plastic. When the courier was not forthcoming in progressing compensation, Mark personally sourced a newly refurbed unit and sent it to me as way of replacement. It runs super quiet. Many thanks to the guys, I strongly advise wrapping consoles in double bubble wrap and use the best strong cardboard packaging box you can find.

    Saved my PS3!

    My original PS2 compatible PS3 was unfortunately overheating within minutes of powering on, with the fans sounding like a jet engine. After sending it to console wizard, it is now almost silent and running perfectly again! I would say the pricing is quite fair given how delicate the delid procedure is, and was certainly much cheaper than me buying a replacement PS2 compatible one from a second hand shop!

    Many thanks again for the great service!
