Especially when watching an upscaled dvd. Was watching Aliens this afternoon and they were audible and annoying especially in the quiet parts of the film. Anyone else experience this? Gaming or watching blu rays are fine. Odd.

I get this after a while watching DVDs, Blu-rays, Folding@Home etc.

And it's not a problem with dust or insufficient airflow since it has been so from the start and it stands on its own shelf with plenty of space around it.

Strange. I'd check for dust. The only time my PS3 fans have become noticeably loud was in the summer running Folding@Home.

The only time I ever heard the PS3 fans was when I was running folding during the summer. When watching, BR or playing games, I don't even notice it at all.

The PS3 fans come on loud occasionally. Typically it is when playing some heavy duty game, watching movies or, in my case, Folding.

Keep it ventilated and you should be fine. It is designed this way for a reason :D

It's normal for the old 60 GB PAL model. It was notorious for its loud fans, especially when Folding or watching upscaled DVSs. The new 40 GB SKU uses a 65 nm manufacturing process and runs cooler and quiter.

Lies, the PS3 is for folding, BD movies, and FF games.

That and you can't be playing games on your 360, because they all are out on warranty.
