my ps3 fan just suddenly got very loud and sounded like it was running really fast, it hasn't done this before, i turned it off and checked for dust but there was none blocking the fans, it seems to be ok now running like normal,

anybody's ps3 done this before ?

I was gonna say, I'm sure you started a thread with the same problems before? And on the old forum too.

But yeah, just keep your PS3's clean, and well ventilated if you don't want the fan in overdrive.


yeah, my room is like an oven anyway as its on the corner of the house an the sun is on it most of the day. just to say, when i moved it downstairs last week it didnt move the fan up a gear, so its dependent on the room temp obviously. I opened mine in june, replaced the thermal paste and cleaned it out a bit, the fan stiil makes the noise but doesnt get the the highest level and takes longer for it to do it. Only do this if you are out of the 12 month warranty and if you feel confident to do it.

p.s theres guides on the net on how to open the ps3 up if it helps
