Nyko has something that claims to keep your PS3 chilled enough to stave off overheating problems experienced on other next-gen consoles. Their Intercooler is similar to the Xbox 360 version in that it features power pass-through, though we hope the similarities end there. Overall, the design is clean and matches the overall matte of the PS3, so you needn't worry about the aesthetics. The only notable downside is the added noise pollution from the extra fans. Seeing as how the PS3 is so quiet on its own, this is something to consider.

Although we have yet to experience a cooked PS3, the Intercooler offers prevention of this perceived threat. But after considering the replacement nightmares from melted Xbox 360 owners, we'd be happier to prevent experiencing the whole PS3 replacement process altogether. We're already skipping the purchase in lieu of new titles on the PLAYSTATION Store, but what are your thoughts on this product? Worthwhile investment, or silly way to shell out $30.00?
