I have the old (first) PS3 60GB console and sometimes it will turn itself off and beep 3 times on its own. Before this happens the cooling fan gets faster and makes more noise so I guess it is a cooling issue. I have just ordered a cooling fan to go on top of the console ( i stand my console vertical so it is like >> I <<(don't know if this makes a difference)) will this help the problem? it was like £12 off ebay so im guessing it isn't one of the best options available but i don't want to spend a lot of money on it. Can someone please advise if this will help the problem or if there is anything else i need to do?
