PS3 Phat Cooling upgrades?

Is it possible to upgrade the cooling for the phat PS3 for stable temps. I’m talking Vapour Chambers and Water Cooling mods without ruining the look of the system. I would like something like a Vapour Chamber or a Water Cooler that is all internal. The system looks stock from the outside no external box,pump etc. It’s all inside the system.

I have the 60gb Launch model CECH

You can try delid cpu, but it's very risky, i ruined one ps3. I have EU launch model, only did cpu delid, because GPU in my case run OK. CELL cpu, specially 90nm run very hot by design. 70c is OK temp.

Originally i only replaced themrmal paste, then decided to do delid on cpu. After Delid i noticed my system run quiter, but at same temp, because i use stock cooling preset, to maintain manufacturers specific temperature.

I doubt it's worth doing extreme cooling upgrades. Since CPU is designed to run hot.

Mine has already been reballed with a delid.

Well, chip is already compromised, any cooling mods won't help to improve lifespan.
I'm pretty sure water cooling or any similar upgrade would make a big difference but it's too much of a hassle to get it in there. I'm going to try out the Fan Utility app see if that keeps temps stable.
