Hello all, I have a 60GB playstation 3 from the day it was released. It's still up and kicking but it does make quite some noise.
I have replaced the thermal paste and the only improvement I see is that it dosn't kick up the fan speed quite as quickly but it still seems to get up there. This video shows how loud my playstation got before I applied new thermal paste, Don't get me wrong it still gets up like this but not as quickly. I was wondering if maybe getting a 19 blade fan would do much to help my noise problem, and if I were to do a case mod like Cutting a hole around the back of the case where the fan in to increase airflow. I keep my Ps3 Spotless, I clean it ever 2-3 months ( take it apart carefully, clean out all of the dust, Put it back together)
2). Is there a way to possibly connect an external HDD to my playstation 3 and download my PSN games onto it because I recently purchased PS+ and I would like to download all my games but I only have 10GB left on my HDD. Is an external HDD possible for this or do I have to fork out like 80euro for a 500GB HDD to put in my ps3.
Thanks for reading my really long post, and for those who are like TL;DR
1). 19blade fan, worth it or no?
2). External HDD for PSN games or replace Internal?

There is dust inside the ps3 and the only way to stop your playstation from making the vacuum noise is to clean it from the inside which Sony doesn't want you to do. I suffers with this problem with my 2nd playstation. My advise is to phone up playstation and ask them what can be done.
if you would have read. I always keep my PS3 dust free by cleaning it every 2-3 months. Including opening the insides and making sure it's all dust free.
