Thanks to several new developments in the PS2 scene, curiosity, and some nostalgia the PS2 has been revisited quite a bit in recent years. One issue that people seem to consistently bring up, specifically earlier Fat/Phat model users, is the console seems to be a bit louder than we remember from 15-20 years ago? Several people have taken it upon themselves to make their own fan mods and replacements with Noctua fans, but we’re taking a look at an easy to install, no cut, affordable Noctua fan mod created by The Peaceful Outcome.

We also take a look at two other pretty cool products The Peaceful Outcome is selling for the PS2: a sled bracket for 3.5″ hard drives and a caddy for 2.5″ hard drives! Both of these are only for Fat/Phat models of the PS2 and are designed so a drive can safely and securely be installed within the expansion bay of a PS2.
