I know some of you have finally gotten you're 360's and have noticed that it runs pretty hot even with the loud fans and water cooled CPU the PS3 is gonna contain even more powersucking, heat producing compontents. This presents a very serious problem for the future. How are we gonna keep these things cool?

A proper water cooling system would be expensive and more difficult to maintain but larger fans will just make too much noise. Proper ventalation does help but there's only so much it can do.

What's worse you still need room inside the console for circulation, but the direction of the future is smaller better so that too poses problems.

Anyone else concerned about this? Or better yet? any one have any idea how to combat the heat?
