    If you mean the official fan test for the 40GB Version, I don't think that it's harmful for the PS3. But what I've heard about the fan test on the 60GB Version is that it's not really good for the components and that it could damage your PS3. I would say it's not worth to try it unless you've got a real reason for performing it.

    That is what I tried to explain. There is no real fan test for the 60GB Version. It works for the 40GB Version and for the 60GB there's only a strange solution (something like turning it) which could damage it.

    Not at all, assuming you are not testing your fan during gameplay. The cpu should be under minimal load.

    Don't worry, the fan test won't damage the PS3, because all the components are soldered to PCB. But donīt abuse of it, due to force the fans to run at max speed isn't good for long time periods...

    I have a 60gb ps3 and I have done the fan test a couple of times.

    I have not noticed any physical effects in doing this.
