For my own amusement I’ve put together a totally unscientific analysis of which console has the quietest fan. The results are interesting to say the least. While the winner for quietest fan might not surprise you, how loud the other console’s fan is might.
UPDATE: Many of you have said that this test wasn’t performed properly, and that both consoles should have games running to get a proper noise level. The PS3 fan runs just as quietly playing games as it does at the dashboard, however I will post a follow up video testing both consoles playing games for proper comparison.
Follow up video has been posted – enjoy!
