    My rSX sits around 74c whilst playing and I want to prolong the life of my rebug slim so was wondering if it's worth messing with the fan control or does it do more harm than good?

    No harm in messing with the fan controls. I have mine to set to auto at 65c and it's still pretty quiet.
    Feel free to mess with them yourself to reach whatever temperature you're comfortable with.

    I opened it up to clean it and it was full of dust. Temps dropped by ten degrees straight away which was great but I'm thinking of getting a reball done now to prolong its life as its my favourite platform and I've got too many game saves stored on it.

    Anyone ever had one professionally done? If so is it worth it in the long run as its quite expensive.
