Knows the Song of Time
I currently own a launch 60GB console that has always had a fan-noise problem. The fan level kicks up to level 3 after a few minutes, even with the system in a very well ventilated location. Since the PS3 does not have any other issues, the problem therein lies with one of two things: 1) Fan, and 2) TIM. Since I'm not in the mood to order a new 19 blade replacement fan, I have some IC-Diamond that I can use to replace the stock TIM. However, I was curious to know if any of you had better results with fan noise after you replaced the thermal paste. Is it worth a shot? I don't want to crack open the PS3 just yet if it's not worth it.
