Scrap, sell, replace, or get repaired overheating PS3?

So my PS3 is overheating. If it has been sitting all day I get about 15 minutes out of it, but once it's hot it'll overheat again in 20 seconds.

From what I can read the fan element separates from the CPU it was chemically bonded to.

You can get htem fixed for anywhere between $60 and $100.

I was going to buy a newer slim one, but they run $270 and I'm gonna end up with extra controllers, remotes, games I dont' want etc. Only other plus would be a bigger HD, but I have never had a problem with it filling since i unload stuff onto a portable.

Has anyone had theirs "reflowed" as they call it? Did the repair last?
The word "there" can appear as a pronoun, as in “over there".

"Their" is a possessive pronoun. In a phrase like “Susan and Bill's car,” it could be used to to make a new phrase: “their car.”

”They're” is a contraction of “they are.”
“They are” should always be able to replace “they're.”

Extra credit: It's "I'm looking for an M3" not "I'm looking for a M3".
