PS3 fan while playing Blu Ray / DVD

When playing movies on the PS3 the fan comes on after only a couple of minutes and generally stays on for the entire movie. It is pretty annoying. The ventilation isn't terrible but not great either. Anyone else notice this?

Anyone that has the slim, do you have the same issue?

If it's anything like mine you don't have to listen closely. I am a good 18' from the box and even with the sound up a bit I can hear it.. Like a computer fan but louder..

I had the exact issue with my old PS3. Decent ventilation isn't good enough. It has to have GREAT ventilation. I took mine outside of my entertainment cabinet and put it on top, in the open. The fan noise dropped GREATLY.

Unfortunately, the way my entertainment center is made and due to the size of my TV I don't have any other place to put it.

I think ours (80gig) is a little loud, but nothing compared to our xbox 360.

I have an 80gb ps3. It's the one from the Metal Gear Solid 4 bundle that has software backward compatibility.

That fan goes nuts when I watch a blu-ray. It is quiet for the first few minutes and then goes full blast the rest of the time. It has plenty of room to vent too. It's sitting on a glass shelf with open sides and back on the cabinet. It just makes a loud wooshing sound the whole time.

I'm about 12ft from it and I have large tower speakers,center chanel,and sub and I can easily hear the fan going so it's not like it is just drowning out some tiny tv speakers or anything.

I'm wondering about the slim also.

I've heard the some ps3s were worse than others and the 80gb MGS4 package is one of the worst.
