As everyone knows, heat is one of the biggest enemies of electronic components. Dragonpower posted these pics of a liquid cooled PlayStation 3.
ps3 has <1% defect rate.
x360 has 100% defect rate. even elite burns down within days
MS themselves admitted that all x360s are 100% defective
WOW nasim, you dissed the Xbox AND backed it up, and by the looks of it no one can argue this one with you GG
The ps3 has to hurry up and come out with games so this little kid nasim could have something to do.
seriously does sony pay you?
I own both consoles and like the PS3 more. The biggest reason is because it actually works. As for the no games argument, it's just plain stupid (see link below). The worst part about the 360 is that when it breaks (and it will, in my case 6 times), it can take up to 2 months to get it back. How's that for "no games"?
You know I've had mine break twice and I got it back in less than a week from when I mailed it. Lucky me I guess? Got a free 6 months Live too since I complained at I guess a supervisor for 10 minutes. :)
Socomnick, your statement about no games on the PS3 is unfounded and unspported by anything other than Microsoft's smoke & mirrors fogging up your mind. You've been tricked.
Has it ever occured to you that every PS3 owner who has a PC computer practically owns a custom built xbox360?
Any game that's mainly worth having is either multiplatformed or ported to the PS3 and / or it's most likely going to be available on the PC such as Gears, Bioshock, and Halo are. Therefore, if the PS3 has no games, the xbox360 equally should have no games. But in addition to having many of the xbox360 games, it has PS3, PS2, PS1, and PSN games. There's something for you to think about.
And let's say that there really are not games. Well, that's fine with me too. Unlike you Socomnick, I can snack on some popcorn and enjoy Spiderman 3 or Casino Royale or practically every movie made in Hi-Definition even if the PS3 stopped gaming completely. What will you do with your xbox360?
Smart people do more than just play games. Kids buy xbox360's.
This is why Parents and teachers have been saying that kids should be studying instead of playing Gears of War. Look at how Socomnick turned out. Socomnick, what's your grade point average?
I don't want to say much, but I don't think you'll understand anyways, but notice that the E3 conference awarded Sony 8 awards with one taking honors in graphics and another taking honors in originality. Microsoft has gotten 11 awards. Considering that Microsoft has almost 2 1/2 years to prove itself with nearly 1 million games available, earning 11 out of those 1 million games during a 2 and half year lifespan suggests that most of Microsoft's games are junk and that it's quantity over quality as in the hardware. In contrast, at the time, Sony was only 6 months old and it took home 8 awards with top honors in graphics and originalty. And at that time, it had only a handful of games or (as you say, "no games"). That suggests quality over quantity. If you want to talk about "NO GAMES," I think you should take a look at the Wii to be fair and justified.
The liquid coolant system has two main benefits and should really be a consideration for any next-next generation console.
1) Tackling the dust problem: Using a liquid coolant system means that there is no need for fan vents to release hot air out. And without vents, dust has a smaller chance of entering the system and harming important components like the lens.
2) Tackling the noise problem: No fan means no noise. But strangely, after the 1.93 update, I'm not hearing any noise from my PS3 at all. The previous update cuased the fan to kick in sooner. But after this 1.93 update, the PS3 is quiet like napping kitten.
The dividing line has been drawn. Everything to the left of that line is the xbox360 and xbox360 multiports. Everything to the right of that line is the PS3 and the loyal PS3 developers like Insomniac games.
The following link is a Grand Turismo5 versus Real-life comparison quiz. Let's see how you do. Take the quiz and see the power of the PS3 rather than the smoke & mirrors of the xbox360. PS3 fans, you might want to try for yourself...enjoy the true next gen experience on the utlimate home theater console -- the PS3.
Power of Green, you can take the quiz if you want, but you might get hurt when you see how good the PS3 really is from this quiz. I suggest you don't take it. I don't know how old you are, but I feel concern for you for some reason. In your other posts, you seem hurt.
Unless you got all 14 answers on this quiz correct on the first try with 100% certainty, with absolutely no doubt at all while you were taking the exam, I don't think you should click disagree. Clicking disagree without passing this test in flying colors shows (to yourself) that you're untrustworthy, pigheaded, and easily amazed by microsoft's smoke and mirrors. You know who you are.(If Microsoft really loves you, then why does it continue to sell you a product that it KNOWS is still defective rather than HALTING production until the flaws are worked out?).
Thank you. Now take the quiz.
Waste of time to do that on a PS3...
true, but it looks cool IMHO.
It would be funny if the hose somehow got punctured and shorted out the PS3, there goes $500. LOL. Seriously, the PS3 is a reliable machine, such a mod is a complete waste of time and resources.
This kind of thing will only happen after this generation.
Even though i love my xbox more than all the other concols, i have to admit, that was a wsate, PS3 is reliable. I woulda liked it more if it was a 360
Very ugly mod.
Why ruin a perfectly good console by turning it into a Borg drone?
Nice, a Star Trek reference!
LMFAO! Funny stuff, ReBurn.
LOL that's exactly what I thought!
make the tubes glow orange and you have a killzone 2 helghast ps3
But useless.Well I won't lie my PS3 could keep me warm in the winter.The PS3 doesn't get hot it blows all that hot air out into my room.My room ends up like 90 degrees after a long gaming session but my PS3's still cool but I'm like friggin' sweatin' over here.
Do you game in a closet?
I live downstairs and usually game at night.The thermostat is upstairs(where its cool at night)so I roast downstairs.
that s cool stuff but you dont really need that since PS3 built to last unlike other products out there within 2 weeks of use bang there you go RROD.
No flame intent.
Aint this suppose to be in Xbox360 instead of PS3?
Exactly what I was thinking when I noticed this article.
i have a liquid cooled pc, dumbass needs to use antikinks on those tubes unless he wants them to screw up
but I think it looks cool....
one for the 360
looks like a "unfinished mod"....
does a ps3 really get that hot???
No... the air around the PS3 gets hot, the console blows the hot air out the vents, making this really pointless.
It seems more likely that the PS3 will be killed by a Liquid Cooling System that accidently leaks than by overheating
I was thinking of getting a cooling fan with my ps3, but after knowing that it had almost no defective rates I though it would be a waste of money.
It said "whisper quiet" one the box. It sounded like a jet starting up and it just didn't look right. I took it back the next day for a refund and haven't thought about getting another one yet.
You would really be amazed at how loud they are in comparison to the silence that is the PS3.
Wow. How hideous
I was wondering if the next consoles to be released if any company would be useing something othere than fans to cool down the consoles. Well this here shows its possible but is it going to be affordable? Also if they do use another way to cool down the gaming consoles would this spark another problem? I say its worth testing out and see what effects it has on the performance after a long period of time.
Yay! Worst mod ever!
I know that the PS3 really doesn't need a cooling system but this is way to cool to pass up, I would buy a 40Gb or a 160Gb PS3( that's if the 160Gb really does come out in the US) and mod it just like how this guy moded his PS3.
Pointless considering ps3 suffers from No heat issues. Maybe this group should consider making a liquid cooled 360
That would be practical, wouldn't it?
Finally, the truth is revealed!
and as part of the Borg assimilation all of your gaming hardware will get terrible and unnecessary mods.
stupidest phucking thing ive ever read.
