New version or old?

I've left my console on for 2 days once by accident. I had paused an endurance race in GT3 and then forgot about it. When I came back, it was perfectly fine! I finished the race of course... :P

I have the slim edition and it gets hot, until i put a fan system behind it.

On my old PSone it never died, and i would leave it on for days on end....

Wouldn't recomend it on the newer slim PS2's though, they seem to get hotter.


And GT4 is the bomb. Yes this game kicks butt. My only complaint is the games learning curve is a little too hard compared to the other releases. But the AI is great and makes the game more life like.

For those of you who prefer XBox, PS has better games with better game play. unlike XBox, which does have better graphics for the most part, XBox is not as fun compared to PS!!

*(Off Topic)*


Could you show me which fan it is?

A picture of it, and where you bought it?

Sorry..... LOL;

Let me refram that one again:

It is 3 PC fans connected together. Nothing super special, just 3 Cooler Master 80MM fans that I convenitly placed toghether with an 13.8 volt PS complete with a Blue LED - to let me know when it is on.....

All the fan wires are soldired on to a small circuit board and then traced to a male power jack - witch leads to the female plug end of a PS providing 13.8 volts at (3amps). The Small PS is a cheap workbench model from Radio Shack that I have had for many years.

All the wires where put thru heatshrink tubing, to make it look nicer, and then the final wires where wrapped with a small dim "SpiralHarnest".

I also soldered an "NTE - 1.2OHM @ 2% resisor" to the LED, to prevent damage from electrical spikes and pops.

(all the cables and the PS neatly fit descreatly behind my entertainment center)

Then I simply placed the "Fan System" behind my PS2 - about 6 inches away to alow proper airflow.

* On a side note, I also cutted two pieces of wood at 1"x 1" and 6" long. I then sanded the wood and stained it to match my Entertainment Center!!! I used the two pieces of wood undernieth the PS2 to lift it off the shelving and help with the air flow (lol - iam such a geek)

I first turn on my "Special Fan System", then play GT4 until about 4-6AM!!! My PS2 never gets hot!! One of my best inventions.... :D

Anyway the project didn't take that long, and the cost was very cheap, about $5-7 total, since I had most of the tools and items. The Blue LED cost me $2.65 at Fry's Electronics - well worth it, very bright; thinking about adding some to my PC :whistle:

Hope that helps :lol: as far as a pic goes, my cellphone is dead and currently charging. But if you still want a pic, you have to wait till tomorrow tongue.gif, cause I have to go to work :angry:
