64 Kudos! Thank you guys for all your help and support to this thread!
the PLAYSTATION 3's "Safety and Support" manual clearly states that the PLAYSTATION 3 unit to operate within temperatures of 41F - 95F
When your PS3 encounters an overheat it usually turn's on and the power LED blinks 3 times or you will get a Yellow light blinking and then shuts down
BD Failures happen when you're using a scratched up disc or over playing ,
I recommend cleaning your PS3 atleast once a week to prevent dust from comming in
Usually when USB ports "Burn out" it's usually from using a USB hub that's sucking more power than 1 port can handle
Shut Down Correctly
Sometimes when users of the PS3 don't have a clue to shut it down correctly, they tend to get errors
Even through common sense, Fan tests should not be done on your PS3 even if you have the 40GB or C80GB (Core 80GB), If your fan sounds quieter than before than either your motor spun alot of grease around the axels or your motor got weaker, also PS3 fan tests for 20, 60 and 80 are even more risky because the PS3 was not designed to be upside down, EVER!
well that's pretty much all the info I could suck out of the forums and the PS3's manuals, I'll add more when I get more info that is prooven true

- Consider buying HDD titles sometimes to keep the usage 50-50
what exactly do you mean by this?
If you usually buy BD games, when the BD Drive gets used alot the drive will fail.... So when buying HDD Titles (the one's you buy off PSN) you'll reduce the risk of over using the BD Drive
nice info thanks, and about the vacuming part any other way to clean the inside form the vents i dunt want to end up damaging anything from the inside, and i also have two fans one of the side and one on the back will that help decrease the amountn of dust going in or increase
