Default PS3 is super loud

I dunno what to do. I've opened her up, just the plastic case... I've vaccumed and shot compressed air....

But after about an hour or so of play, it gets extremely loud. Like take the 360disc drive to the power of 10.

It's so bad it turns me off from playing anything on it at all.

It sucks. Mine was like that for quite awhile. it eventually bit the dust with a bad disc drive, which is probably unrelated, I'm sure. Regardless, once the disc drive died, I was still using it to play psn games, and even running psn games off the hdd, it was loud as fuck.

I don't think there is much you can do. I opened mine up and was astonished at the amount of dust in there. I was sure that it was going to quiet down when I vacuumed all that shit out of there...I put it back together, plugged it in..turned it on..and was slapped upside the head when that damn fan kicked right back up into hyper-drive.

I would say sell it, and invest in a slim...but thats not a true solution, I guess.

Is it out-of-warranty?

It sounds like it may be on the way out....sorry to hear about your issues.

It would be nice if Sony had a longer warranty, this type of stuff seems more common then it should be.

Mine gets loud if the room gets hot. Sadly, I don't have much say over climate control in the dorm because the school runs it's own thing where they have to switch over manually.
