PS3 sounding louder.

Hey has anybody noticed in the past month or so that their PS3 sounding louder. If I put my PS3 on pause for about 5min all of sudden the fan kicks in really high gear and it's very loud. Almost as loud as my 360. I've never noticed this before.

Mine runs the latest firmware and unless I'm in the middle of a game it runs at normal fan speed, mine only ever turns up when I'm playing Grand Theft Auto IV and occasionally during Midnight Club: Los Angeles. Might be some dust buildup in your console, I usually vacuum mine out every 3 months (on a low setting) or so just to get rid of any buildup.

I started noticing it when I got Uncharted II at launch and last night I was playing Modern Warfare COD4 and just put it on pause and switched back to watching TV for awhile and then after like 5min it sounded like a damn gas turbine engine in my living room. I will get some compressed air and see it that fixes but I keep my systems pretty clean already.

Get a can of compressed air and blow out all the vents, its probably just dust.

I can't recommend just using compressed air for the PlayStation 3 for cleaning out the vents because with the design of the console your actually forcing dust in further into the console, sure some comes out because your blasting it loose but in the end it's not helping, if you use compressed air and vacuuming you'll get the dust knocked loose by the air and anything the air might miss before it goes further into the console.

Vacumed and used compressed air on mine. Didn't see much dust at all. This sucks if this is prelude to a crashed PS3. I love my phatty and don't want a slim. I'm almost thinking a firmware upgrade may have be a culprit as to why my fan is kickin in at such a high speed. Doesn anybody know if Sony may have changed something to cause this?

I actually read something a while ago on the Xbox forums on GT, and basically a guy was saying that to prevent RROD you should leave the Xbox one the dashboard for 5 mins before switching the console off.

First I looked at this, and thought, that's stupid and makes no sense. But it does make sense. Because when you switch the console off immediately after an hour of gaming, the fans switch off immediately, causing the motherboard to warp. This is why most cases of YLOD and RROD occur as soon as you switch the console on. So I decided to do this with my new PS3 (after the first one YLODed), now whenever I quit a game, I leave it on the XMB for 5 mins, and the fans will quiet down eventually.

Then I switch it off.

Shak thats pretty smart actually.

For the noise thing, if you got the dust out and its still doing it then thats exactly the problem. The internal things have warped because of heating and cooling down so much, basically just age. I keep a small little desk fan running on my ps3 all the time, blows right into the vents, probably why my fans never kick in.

Move it to someplace where dust will have a hard time getting to
