Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
This may be normal and may also suggest danger. I don't know the atmosphere where you are running your PS3, if this hot and congested, try to put it in a cool corner or an airy place just to check, that the response is same or the fan is normal. If that remains the same, then there is a 100% chance that your GPU is heating up. Your issue is probably the thermal paste on your CPU & GPU has dried up and needs to be replaced. I would advise you stop using your PS3 until you have this done or you risk getting the YLOD.
And never put some fan or vacuum cleaner like thingy near, the exhaust mechanism is out-wards in PS3 and throwing air in, creates hurdle for the default fan.
I hope you will have a clear picture now.
If you have any Confusion, questions or issues regarding your problem do tell me.
