This in fact doesn't help, it sometimes causes more damage than good. The PS3 has a large fan mounted directly over it's center heatsink which can not be altered by this Nyko fan in any way. There is an on board temperature reader that speeds up fan rotation to accommodate for heat.

What I'm getting at is that you don't have to worry, PS3s only overheat if there is a problem with the heatsink or the internal main fan.
