If it's an older system, break that thing open and clean it! ^^ If it a newer system, or you just don't feel like stripping it to clean it, then use an air compressor to blow the crud built up in the back of the system. Make sure the compressor hose is dry, as you don't want water to get inside your system. Good luck, and I hope this helps.
The system you have is the backward compatable "FAT" PS3. One of the biggest issues with them was the over heating. The clock speed in the older systems varied greatly from the newer because they had a completely different power supply system. The older systems where often loud because it had to cool not only the cpu/apu but the power supply as well. I recommend, either putting up with it, or stripping it down, disabling the fan, and pop it on a tabletop cooler.
Don't do anything your fan is just fine it's just running faster to keep it cool when you hear a clicking sound at high speed then you should be worried about it cause your fan is failing and should be replaced
i had the same problem once make sure that the ps3 is not on a carpet, or move it to a hard suface and a more ventilated area,, that is probably the best solution since the ps3 requires alot of cooling down.
this sounds like the fan is spinning as fast as possible try to put the system in open so it can get air into all the fans if it is in a inclosed space it could over heat the system and fry it just try to leave it in open and maybe put a fan by it to increase cool air to system
When I first got my PS3, It had the annoying high pitched fan sound as well, but went away after a week and has worked fine ever since, no problems at all. I have the 60 gig version, so. Maybe if yours is new you just need to break it in?
