Everyone knows PS3's excellent HTPC capabilities, but not everything is perfect.

The PS3 slim model I bought makes an annoying loud high pitched noise.
So, is there any way to make it quieter?
Has anyone succesfully made it quieter?

Thanks in advance,
Jadas.

I read an excellent article on silencing PS3s and Xbox 360s, can't remember the website now, but it is simple and effective. I have used this method on several of my friends' consoles and they have never been happier. I shall outline the steps as best I can remember below;

1. Find a large hammer or housebrick
2. Firmly tap console with above heavy object
3. Repeat step 2 until silence is achieved
4. Dispose of mess
5. Buy a proper computer

It is literally that easy.

If I cut the top cover is it possible to replace the fan with a PC fan?

Note that PC fan blows vertically in contrast with the original PS3 fan which blows from the sides, so will the flow provide adequate cooling to the CPU and chipsets?

PS: If I post to the wrong section of the forum, moderator please move it to the right one.
