Everything in my apartment seems to collect a lot of dust.

My workstation PC collects the most between the twin intake fans, push/pull CPU fans, etc. It's a regular vacuum cleaner. I had to install dust filters.

The only thing that gathers more dust is my vacuum cleaner. It does not play any games though.

The PS3s suck in a fair amount of dust, particularly the one that's on every day.

The 360 doesn't show dust (original matte white), which is not to say that it's not there.

Incidentally, the Wii gathers the least dust. Small profile, low heat/tiny fans and most importantly; it's never turned on.

Replace it with a slim instead.



Rockstar: Announce Bully 2 already and make gamers proud!

Kojima: Come out with Project S already!

My PS3 stands still for 10 Months now, my last Game i bought was Heavy Rain. PS3 gets hardly good exklusiv Games. Thre are no Games for PS3 especially this year.

We all know that the PS3 is the most powerful and the most complex console in the market. The problem is, its a dust collector, and at any second I could get the YLOD!!!!! I ain't opening such a complex console to finally play games on it.

I ask my friends about this worrying problem and he gave me a list of games and told me to pirate them. I told him "I'll never pirate you pirate!" and he told me, " but its so easy,you have to learn how to hack it though, here, have a look at this video" He gave me the video and I got this.

If you didn't look at the video because you don't trust me, he gave me a video about a strange man dancing. I mean, yeah, Its great to see a good dancer once in a while, but that doesn't solve the problem. I don't know what to do with the dust I have in my ps3 >:l

RANT OVER

Man, some of the posts in here crack me up. Read the OP people... >_>

Anyway, the newer PS3s don't have anywhere near as bad of a problem, but my 60GB does collect dust pretty bad.



                                                                                                             

you should vacuum it or give it a blow job

if its a phat then you dont have a warranty on it so you can open it up and do a better job with the cleaning and even change the thermal paste on it

there are plenty of vids showing you how to do it or you can send it out some companies like gophermods or capital circuits ect. they clean them and reapply arctic silver 5 thermal paste for like $40

i have a 60gb that i bought in june 07 it ylod on me this march i had it reballed with lead solder and i have it stored in its original box i went out and bought a slim to game heavily on

the point is when my ps3 broke i did alot of research on it and found out that 20 60 and 40gb ps3s were more prone to ylod b/c they run hotter resulting in much inconstant thermal cycles which causes the weak lead free solder to crack giving you the ylod

so having it cleaned and replacing the thermal paste can help reduce the risk of ylod

 

dont know why ur friend would tell u to pirate games when mentioning a dirty ps3 or your poll

lol i had to add something funny to the thread,i know how they feel but ever since i came back after my last ban i seem to joke about everything now lol

it seems to be keeping me out of trouble as well so it's all good, anyway hope you find a solution if not like other ppl said a good hoover always did the trick what i had a fat ps3, but as soon as i could because it kept on freezing and shutting down on me i traded it in, because i was too scared it would YLOD on me, so i know how you feel

lol @ the people not reading the OP.



"Naturally the common people don't want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, IT IS THE LEADERS of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is TELL THEM THEY ARE BEING ATTACKED, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. IT WORKS THE SAME IN ANY COUNTRY."  --Hermann Goering, leading Nazi party member, at the Nuremberg War Crime Trials
