    Anyone use one? Any to stay away from? Any work flawlessly? I'm looking to keep my PS3 Slim cool and alive for as long as possible. Been combing through reviews on Amazon but I'd rather take some tempers' word for it. Something I've noticed is that a lot of models double as a cooling fan and a vertical stand, is keeping my PS3 vertical going to affect it in any way in the long run? Better to keep it horizontal? Thanks!

    Stay clear of it.
    They disrupt airflow severely and cause overheating.

    Just clean it out from dust once in a while and make sure you got Arctic MX-2 as the thermal paste.
