    I have just done his, and it certainly works, how much good it does, I don't know, but the fan sounds a little quieter now.

    saw this earlier inthe fan noise thread,someone mentioned there was a way to do it on a 60gb one but nobody mentioned how!

    Anyway, is it just me thats not that bothered about dust? I'll give all my kit a wipe now and again to get rid of dust but blowing it out with a fan and using hoovers to suck the air out:confused: I suppose its fair enough if its gonna extend the life of your equipment(does it?) but i think some people are just a bit too anal! :D

    It's a trick!

    This topic was discussed a couple of months ago.

    Re: 60gb PS3 fan test, some genius realised if you turn your PS3 on and turn it upside down the fans will ramp up very quickly - mostly because it's overheating...

    With the 60gb one, a guy said you could do a fan test by turning your PS3 upside down. All this was actually doing was trapping the heat and overheating your PS3. The guy even said 'it might say your PS3 is overheating - but its not'.

    Hence, a trick.

    The 40gb version is legit though.

    Nice to know...

    I assume it might 'cough' be a really really good idea to remove the PS3 from the cabinet first before trying this and maybe try and catch all that dust!

    Warning
