Super tutorial but my ps3 fat look a little bit different inside but after all I was able to replace the 12v fan inside to an third part one which was definetly very quite even if I set it up to 100% (using a web exploit)

Remember fellas - the PS3 shown in this tutorial is most likely (almost 100%) the launch backwards compatible model. Meaning, the later FAT models without backwards compatibility WILL LOOK DIFFERENT INSIDE.

Be aware of that as to not wrongly disassemble your precious old PS3.
