Apparently you can spin the fan up on the PS3 really fast to remove dust and dirt to clean it out. Is it safe?

You remove the power lead from the console, hold down the eject button whilst plugging the lead back in and it will do a quick fan test which should blow out all the dirt.

I read Sony do this themselves when repairing/refurbishing PS3's. Just a thought.

- Edit, just tried it lol - must say, the slim does seem a bit quieter which is good. I think I remember doing this every few months on my old 40GB phat console.
