Its probably normal, what do you have 60Gb?

 

I read about this somewhere else on these forums. 

 

Think of it as a bonus, you now have a fan heater for those cold autumn night sessions. 


I have a refurb 40GB.

Facts of the moment:
"My PS3 is not fat, it's just big boned."
"The console war is as real as the war on terrorism."
"The wizards first rule applies to both YLOD and the SLIM."

"Tons of trophies doesn't say you're a great gamer, it says you have too much free time."

Re: My PS3 fan is going crazy.

The funny thing is that the fan immediately stops spinning like crazy the moment I quit Uncharted 2.

Re: My PS3 fan is going crazy.

That happens to me too!

As soon as I get off the Uncharted 2 Beta the fan goes back to level 1

Whenever I play the Uncharted 2 Beta, the fan on my PS3 starts spinning like crazy and it sounds like a blowdryer (very loud).

And this only happens with Uncharted 2. No other game makes my PS3 fan spinn like crazy.


Must be the firmware, just ask T-E-X..  He knows everything about PS3.

Maybe it's because Uncharted 2 takes advantage of ALL the processing power in the PS3, which makes the unit hotter than usual which means the fan has to spinn really fast to keep it cool Smiley Tongue
