    It would be nice if your IT guy can do a small tutorial/list of materials needed?
    Drop off your PS4 in Midrand. Sure he can help out.

    Whats the charge? My machine DESPERATELY needs this. It's a day one launch PS4. Never been cleaned, and it sounds so loud during games that I honestly stare at it thinking it might blow up. I work in Woodmead. Midrand is 10min at a lunch time.

    If I do it myself im gonna break something cause that's what I do.

    Yeah mine has been super quiet on rdr2, played yakuza 6 before it and it was going full throttle throughout the majority of that game.

    PS4 is about 4 years old. Opened it up a few times myself to clean out dust. But nothing else.

    Was a fair amount of dust in the fan and heat sink.

    Attachment 96166

    Uploading is giving me issues so had to do this.

    So far its a massive change. Fan noise has dropped (Testing on GOW) by a significant amount. Should have done dB tests, but meh

    Would recommened anyone that has a PS4 to change the paste and give it a good cleaning.

    IT guy said he can help anyone interested.
    Which paste did you use?
