Title:

Loud PS3 fan. System overheats and shuts down after 2 hours

Text:

What do I need to fix in order to stop my PS3 from shutting down after 2 hours of gameplay? The fan speeds up about 5 notches within a minute then sounds like a hoover within half hour, eventually shutting down. It doesn't have the YLOD; I can turn it back on and carry on playing. So, what do I need to do before it eventually blows up?
