It doesn't really matter which one. It is personal preference.

As long as it's well ventilated.

 

If you choose to have it standing, just make sure it is safely secured in a stand. (sold separately.)

thank you for the response bro, btw, the reason i asked is because well i heard somewhere that standing up won't destroy the thermal paste that  is causing the ylod? my never did but it had flashing red light after 30 second before i send it to sony...

think about it..heat rises and the heatsinks will not work 100% efficient unless its directly above the GPU/CPU..not sideways..

Nah that first response was correct.  As long as you have plenty of ventilation it shoulnd't matter which way you keep your PS3.

Personally, Id have it sitting like its primarily designed to do...I know its also advertised more "styleishly" in a verticle position, but since it is not a solid-state HDD, id play it safe, seeing as you already have had problems in the past.
