as long as its not on a carpet, or baking in the sunlight, or right next to the furnace and you dont leave it running over night or play for 24 hours straight, you dont need to worry about ylod.
the idiots who got the ylod always leave out these finer details which definitely gave them ylod in the first place.
for example, some stupid broad i know, left her ps3 on all night every night on standby, folding, xmb, whatever you wanna call it, and finally one day it gave in. and it never crossed her mind that the excessive power usage is what did it in.
it wouldnt hurt to give your ps3 a dusting every now and then either.
"He who cannot obey himself is commanded...The devotion of the greatest is to encounter risk and danger, and play dice for death...And life itself confided this secret to me: 'Behold,' it said, 'I am that which must always overcome itself.'"

It's built to take the heat it outputs. Now, cover the vents and there's a problem.
