Water-cooled, luggable PS3 offers semi-convenient gaming for your on-the-go lifestyle and the cooling system replaces the stock heatsinks, allowing for a slimmer design. The project is currently up for auction on eBay with 12 bids the highest of which being $1.000 and the modder also claimed he’d allow potential purchasers to bypass the bidding process by contacting him on the site’s forums………..
Pirate’s PS3 Water-cooled Portable/Laptop is a water-cooled PS3 in a portable form, fully equipped with its own reservoir, pump and radiator. The case was all constructed from scratch. It features an aluminum base plate, and the rest of the material used was sintra/komatex. The case was routed via CNC machines with designs created in Adobe Illustrator. The questions some of you may be asking why water-cool the PS3? The reason for water-cooling the system was to redesign the cooling to fit in a small case (which is significantly thinner than previous portable I made). Water-cooling the PS3 allowed me to get rid of the clunky heatsinks which was responsible for cooling stock PS3s. Only 4x40mm fans were used in cooling the entire system.
