The 40gig PS3 probubly won't run as hot as say the 80 or 60gig iterations of the PS3 mainly due to the fact the EE was taken out so the unit runs a little cooler over all thus the fans don't come on as quickly.

You still have fans though at both the back and side I would imagine, just it only comes on when the unit needs to be cooled so play for a few hours and it will come on.

I have a 60gig and the fans come on within a half hour of playing usually and I play for loooong periods and my PS3 stays very cool.

Sorry to hear about your 80gig, very rare that happens with PS3's.
