I've been folding for about a week with my PS3 and am currently half way through my 7th WU for OCN, though I cant have it running 24/7 for a few reasons:
- As quiet as it is, I have it set up a meter from where I sleep so I have to turn it off at night.
- As cool as it is, my room is badly situated and ventilated so on hot days I give it breaks as it can get quite toasty in my room.
- Currently I fold during the day while I am revising downstairs (I'm on study leave ATM), but later the PS3 is used for gaming by me and my brother as we're catching up on the Oblivion craze that we missed a year ago because we both have crappy laptops.

If anyone does have any problems keeping their PS3 cool (not likely) or just wants it to be a cool as possible (like me) and has access to a standard desk fan, setting it up like so can be quite helpful. Sadly I don't have access to any temp sensors but the top and back vents on the PS3 were noticeably cooler with the extra fan. My fan's lowest setting is louder than the PS3 at its loudest but noise will obviously be dependent on the make/model of your fan. I haven't noticed any increase in dust buildup while using the fan either.

Its hardly a revolutionary cooling system and most people here will be familiar with the 'pointing a sodding great fan at it' cooling strategy, but if you are folding 24/7 and are concerned with temps, you might want to give it a shot.
