Ps3 fan doesnt go down a stage upgraded fan
Okay so I use to play dead rising 2 and I noticed my ps3 went up in stages to the point of sounding like a jet taking off, so yes I knew what the problem was since iv had issues like this before. so I went out and bought some thermal paste and took my ps3 apart and seen there wasnt much paste (dump sony) so I put new paste on and I found a ps3 fan that was a 19 bladed fan. I seen my old fan was 17 I think and had 2.0amps I believe and the 19 fan was 2.90A so I put the 19 fan in my ps3 and now I notice after playing twisted metal and go to the xmb the fan doesnt go down to a lower stage like it should and it never went down to a lower stage with the old fan as well so, does anyone know what the problem is? My ps3 is a 80gbCHL01 btw my ps3 goes up to stage 2 or 3 in about 5mins still just like before could still be a paste problen iv been messing around with trying to find the right amount to much is bad to little is bad thanks.
