I don't think the slimlines have a fan inside, right? Nor does the case really allow for you to add your own. So you are probably left with either a) a case mod or replacement, or b) just keeping it in a well-ventilated area somewhat apart from other heat generating equipment, maybe with a small fan blowing on it. (Not to mention taking a break once in a while...72 hours is a hella long time, how did you even stay awak?!?)

yeah those things get really hot. put a fan on the bottom somehow because my cousin's when i went to move it the bottom was really hot

keep it propped up on something and make sure there is lots of airflow under it

How about a laptop cooler? the PS2 will just sit ontop of it, and dual fans will cool it underneath.

I had to do that with my home entertainment system, I have a sony surround sound system, and I sit my DVD player ontop of the amp. 6 months later I burnt out the DVD player just because it was so hot ontop of the surround sound amp.

so I bought a laptop cooler and put it between the amp and dvd player. Might be overkill, but it looks kool!
