all you big bad gamers out there most likely already know this, or have a much more high tech solution to keeping your system cool, soo just over look the simplicity of this and let someone new to ps3 get a cheap pointer.....                            so to any newbees out there,,listen...   my ps3 slim turned off and blinked the red light, i freaked, because money isn't really my friend right now and i would be screwed...    luckily for me, it was just hot..  so i seen a post of a guy who said put beer caps under the corner points of the system to give it some belly room to breath....  welll, beer caps didnt sound to appealing so i just bought me some powerades and took the caps off them and put them under there... sooo it sounds pretty lame but, i guaruntee your ps3 will stay cooler longer.  and if you have any tips,,,, you know, something cheap and witty, lets hear em....  after all know,  no one wants a dead ps3.  and you big bad gamers, dont be shy let us hear some of your info too,,,,, not trying to pick at you guys ( and girls),,,,, what can i say, i just value your opinion soo much.

I put Xbox games under the corners of mine.
Just because you're not paranoid, doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

lol yes xbox games can be used for all sorts of everyday purposes, i use them to reflect sun light and blind on coming traffic, just seems that if microsoft is going to make crappy games they might as well cause car wrecks too

That's a good tip. Elevating your PS3 a bit can't hurt the airflow around the system. I've got mine sitting on a Coolermaster brand laptop cooling fan. It's powered by USB so it doesn't even need it's own electrical plug plus it keeps air moving around my PS3 constantly.

no kidding,,,, a regular fan would work good, but i don,t know if you've checked out the prices of a a cheap ole fan from the dollar store , but i can't see paying paying 15 dollars for a motor and plastic... maybe i'm just being a cheap skate. like ive said before, the next great gaming console will be the one that is freakin hulked out... they need to make *bleep* tuff.. why is it that evey ps3 winks out after a while, because they know you'll buy what ever it takes to repair it or pay for their "expert" service.... it just seems like a big money conspiracy to me, and no ever complains about that..... like the governments electronics are over heating all the time,,,,, get real!
