Hey :wve:

It's very hot here in my city and when I'm playing games on my PS3, after some minutes the fans start spinning faster and the sound is not quiet anymore. It doesn't bother me, tough. But I'm here to ask: why is this happening?? Is it because the hot weather or does my PS3 have a fan problem??

:wve:

Might just be the hot weather cause my ps3 did that not too long ago and it has been getting hot here too.

Does that happen everytime you play a game?? 'Cause I was playing today, and the loud sound started. Change the position to vertical, change it from one place to another, and nothing... it's in a well ventilated area.

Nope it just did it for like a minute and stopped. It makes this noise non stop?

This happens to me sometimes too, usually on hot days, in which I'm assuming the fan just needs to spin faster in order to keep the PS3 cool (and the noise is non-stop on my PS3 as long as it remains switched on).

It's a shame though, because it's really annoying to me, so I usually end up turning the PS3 off when it begins to get noisy. :p

^Yeah... I quit the game and let it alone... but the noise didn't stop. It only stops if I turn the console off. Weird.

k, do you have an air conditioner to keep the house/room cool?

Nope, it's hot here and my bedroom gets hot too.

Well an air conditioner might help cool the air in the room so the ps3 fan wouldn't have to work as hard to cool the ps3.

But do you think my PS3 got a fan problem or not?? :confused:

My (brand new, second) PS3 is exactly the same. It also gets pretty hot at some places, in addition to being loud as a jet taking off. =/ And I keep it at the most ventilated place I can think of.
