Re: If your PS3 Slim gets really hot

Aug 31, 2009
thanks for all the help and advice woobieizer,atleast you don't think i'm a "xbot" or a "idiot".But I think we will see as more people get the PS3 Slim if they get heating issues within a couple of minutes with there cord being plugged into the PS3 a certain way.

Re: If your PS3 Slim gets really hot

when i compared my friends slim to my 60, it felt about the same but im guessing thats because the slim is in a more compact housing meaning heat is more concentrated coming out the rear vents since its all pushed through the rear now and not 2 or 3 vents compared to the 60 housing.

 

But the 60 gb did get a bit hotter as the hours went on from game play fan went up 1 or 2 levels but nothing loud at all, the slim stayed at a constant tempreture from hours of gameplay fans stayed quiet the whole time.

Here is what I suggest you do. How about a little science experiment. http://www.amazon.com/Pro-Grade-Non-Contact-Infrared-Thermometer-Laser/dp/B000HWZTGG/ref=sr_1_5?ie=U... Here is a good deal on a infrared thermometer. You should test the slim idling for 5 minutes with cord side up and down, then with a game running cord side up and down and record your results. This will prove whether your theory is correct. You may add time to the experiment if it seems necessary. 

http://www.amazon.com/WestWard-Tools-Westward-Infrared-Thermometer/dp/B000TKRSK6/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&... Here's an even cheaper one but I suggest the above one if you are serious about it.

I'm sure they tested it pretty vigorously before releasing it to the public so I don't see why everyone is so worked up about it.
