Crono, and others, I'm going to put all my broken controllers and other stuff in a box. Maybe one day we should get together and mod controllers under the tutelage of said Crono. I Haz a dremel , saws, and other instruments, to hack or edit controllers.

Sounds like a great idea for a forum! Im sure i can give you guys a pointer or two. Maybe i can start a class, "Modding with Crono" 


I'll def throw up some pics on here, although i havent done too much gaming stuff lately. My recent time has been spent "modding" a 70s era wooden console radio/8track/record player.

Heres my mod of the day. I did this a few weeks ago and its quick and easy. All you need is a drill with a hole saw bit, a wire cutter, usb cable, and a cheap pc fan.


After long gaming sessions my PS3 started overheating and shutting off. I noticed there was no ventilation in its little coffin of a home that is the entertainment center. So i wired up a fan that connects to the usb port on the PS3. When you turn the PS3 it powers up the usb and turns on the fan. 

First cut the usb cable and strip it down to the Red,Green,White, and Black wire. Snip off the White and Green. Also snip off the metal braiding. 


Then strip down the red and black of the usb cable and the pc fan cable. Twist the metal ends together and cover with some electrical tape. (You could solder them together too if you feel up to it but its not needed)


Now with the hole saw, cut a fan sized hole in the back of the shelf. Screw in the fan, plug it into the PS3 and yer done.





Now the PS3 is a cool as ice!

also make sure the Pc fan is blowing outwards and not towards the system. This will also work with anything else that has a usb port

Heres some more pics of the sweet DeWalt stick. Recently I added a usb port on the front.

Even though its all beat up, I think its my favorite stick.


The wiring is still a bit messy on the inside. Never got around to cleaning that up :P

Here is the usb port i intsalled. It makes it a lot easier to store away the cord
