I remember well the day my first PS3 died. I was sitting in my office working and all the sudden I heard this beeping sound. Once I walked around the corner, I could see the light on the PS3 flashing behind the glass door of my entertainment system. When I opened that glass door, my eyebrows were roasted half off by the heat trapped inside. Bye, Bye PS3.
If your entertainment center is poorly ventilated – or your gear just gets hotter than you like it to, Antec has a new solution specifically for cooling your gear. The device is called the Soundscience A/V Cooler. Inside the shiny silver case is a pair of dual speed 80mm blower fans.
The top of the device is aluminum for heat dissipation. The cooler pulls hot air in from under the device and then spits that hot air out the back through pair of vents. The dual fans promise quiet operation with a maximum of 28.7 dBA of noise. Antec also says that the device needs only 5W of power to operate on high. You can order the Soundscience A/V Cooler now for $139.95 (USD).
