Thanks Cheeto!

I'll do that when I get home! My room is really full of dust, so I guess I should be doing it all the time.

I dont know if you are aware but some PS3 models have a self clean
mode. I do it with mine once a week and I have to say I am pretty
impressed with the self clean mode. Basically its just a built in vaccum
inside and it blows any dust etc out the vents. So I do this and then I vaccum like this guy is in that video.

Not alot of people seem to know about this

That is not a self cleaning mode. it's called "Fan testing" and it can damage your PS3's GPU and/or fry the motherboard, it make the fans run at Maximum, and makes your PS3's actually overheat. It also can lower your PS3 life span. If it is not verified by Sony, or on the manual with the system you purchased, then it is most probably something you shouldn't do.
