you want indepth intrusions? you wanna be deeply penetrated?
naw, i'm bulls**ttin' but yeah i had the same problem about a year or so back. it happened with my 60gb launch PS3. it started out normal but then after about 2-3 minutes it kicked up a notch which was noticeable but not really bad then once it was on at exactly 9 minutes that motherf**ker sounded like a blow dryer set on high. it got so bad that i couldn't even watch movies on it at night because in order to hear the movie i had to have my volume really loud.

i've heard of people that have had the same problem replacing the thermal paste that covers the chip that causes the system to overheat. you can try that as long as your system is no longer under warranty or if it is still under warranty just take it back and swap it out for a new one because trust me it's not gonna get any better.

sounds like the YLOD is approaching

my og ps3 used to whistle like that, my buddies was quite as a mouse.... sounds like its overheating and trying really hard to cool itself down, aka YLOD is approaching..

its prob got a s**tload of dust inside the ps3, opening and cleaning it prob the best thing u can do, but like above said your warranty is gone once u crack open the seal

Mine used to do that every single time I played Uncharted 2. Then I stopped playing it and when played other s**t, it wouldn't do that. So I stopped playing Uncharted 2 for a while. Now when I play Uncharted 2 it doesn't do that anymore.... and that was early this year. Weird.

nah just get a vacuum with a hose attachment and clean out all the vents it will quiet down and just make sure were ever you got your ps3 sitting while your playing it has plenty of air for the ps3 dont have it in a enclosed type place.

oh and whatever you do DONT USE A CAN OF AIR to clean out your system, cuz those cans of air still contail liquid in them and well liquid on electronics is not a good thing
