Playstation 3 Noisy Fan - CPU RSX IHS De Lid

Does your console's fan keep speeding up until the noise level is unbearable? 

Does it sound like you have a vacuum cleaner inside your console?

Is your console powering off with an "Over Temperature" warning?

This is caused by the Thermal compound underneath the IHS Plates on the Cell and RSX chip drying out and needing to be replaced. The problem being is the IHS plates are bonded to these chips.

PS3 Noisy Fan De Lid service

AMAZING SERVICE - Sent it off on the Tuesday had it returned on the Friday. Super fast and super professional. Looked after the console and a noticeable difference in noise. Adds peace of mind also for the reliability to the old fat PS3s. Highly recommended company!

PS3 is now working great

I have an original phat PS3 which used to overheat quite regularly every time I played a game. I booked the noisy fan option and is now working like new, console wizard were very informative and communication was great. Saved me having to get a new console. Great service and would highly recommend.
