PS3 Slim Fan Really loud - Scary

17 Replies 1254 Views Created 29-06-2010

Would appreciate any feedback from any of you guys with more experience with PS3's.

Basically, its hot here in the UK where I live, ranging from 25 - 27.5 degrees celcius inside my living room where my ps3 slim is. I've hooked it up to a logic3 ps3 slim stand and fan to keep it cool and vertical as well as a desk fan blowing directly towards the ps3 about 3-4 feet away. Despite this the fan in the slim goes to the highest level/speed and makes an insane amount of noise after only 10-15 minutes when playing uncharted 2 online. is this going to overheat my slim?

As a precaution I only play one deathmatch (10-15 mins) and turn my ps3 off for about 20 minutes and then play another deathmatch and repeat. Annoying! Usually when the temperature is around 21 degrees (without desk fan) I can play uncharted 2 online for 6 hours or so before the fan hits the loudest level. Trust me I've had those kinds of sessions many times! Would be grateful if anybody could tell me what I can do and whether it is advisable to continue playing after the fan hits the loudest level when ambient temp is around 26 degrees celcius.

P.s. I bought the slim in Jan 2010 so its still quite new never had this problem before and sorry about the long post.

Dude I got it from em Gamestation. They don't really know much about gaming to be honest - not in my store anyway. I wanted to know what you guys thought and your personal experiences. Has this happened to you when playing ps3 when it is a hot day (and night in my case)

Would I get that? - It's only a loud fan in the heat. Its OK otherwise. Will they power it up and check or take it no questions asked. and will i get 1 year warranty on the new replacement slim
