Is this better than putting in an extra fan?
Well water cooling works better than air cooling I think.. which is why people use it in their computers and cars etc... But it's pretty expensive as a setup, which is why I'm wondering if it's even worth it or not. For the 360 I can see why those things heated like a sun!

The ps3's I hear can overheat although maybe not the slim? I don't even know how you would add a water coolking system in a slim! LOL barley any room!

I have always been wary of modding a console, and the idea of cooling electronics with water (the anti-electronic element) seemed kind of ironic to me. I would be afraid it would leak and fry my system, but i guess if you are modding a console then you know what you are doing and don't worry about doing it wrong. and an overheating ps3? that's something i haven't heard of too often, i thought it was just the xbox' that could be used as ovens. : D

ya I think it depends on the ps3 age. I think the older ones tend to heat up after a few yrs. Probably from a clogged fan full of dust.

As for cooling with water. When I 1st heard it.. I thought it was bogus. But apparently it's a very good way to cool. The other option is making it into a mini a/c LOL! then it stays REALLY cool!

The term "liquid cooled" sounds automotive oriented, doesn't it? Indeed, liquid cooling has been an integral part of the common gasoline engine for the better part of 100 years. Which begs to ask, why is it the preferred method of cooling expensive automobile engines? What's so great about liquid cooling, anyway

Thankfull the newer consoles for ps3 and xbox 360 cool MUCH better aka SLIM versions.

But I have a feeling the new gen ps4 and xbox one are going to SUCK at cooling... :(
