PS3 Slim fan noise discussion.

Hey guys, there seems to be many people saying that their Slims are silent and they need to put their ear next to it to hear any noise but some others saying otherwise.

 

This is my PS3 Slims fan noise and I am not very happy, it is louder than my 60GB & 40GB by far. I have already replaced it because I thought that it was too loud.

 Here is the noise http://www.tiny.cc/7pNz8

By the way the microphone is lying next to the slim.But you can hear this sound accross the room

 

 

What do you guys think and how loud is your slim?

 

 

 

Should I get Sony to replace it as I think the store might just have a loud batch.

i would agree with you straight away but i would also like to jump and say i would go with the "fat" ps3  very realiable and slim versions of consoles lets be honest they never quite go as far as the originals.

I buy the move bundle to start, fan was very quiet (no tone pitch sound) except the hard drive and the blue disc do a lot of noise very more that the one I posted on youtube.I Need to replace it because power supply fail 3 week after purchase.

 

This is the sound of my new ps3 slim. Sound like a hairdryer.  Extremely annoying. I am thinking to return it again. 320 gb model CECH25xx -B
