Should I check my paste and re-apply AS5 and check the pressure clips?
Make sure your ps3 is in a open area getting a good amount of air. You can replace your thermal paste but it won't make much of a difference. As nick said it's designed to spin the fans faster when it reaches a certain temp or your ps3 will over heat
