    Default PS4 Pro CUH-7200 Revision

    Looks like a slight revision to keep it quieter, but it runs hotter. Not sure that's a great idea but for those in the market it might be worth checking the model numbers:

    Basically they reduce the fan speed to keep it quiet.

    Would be nice if they had an option to change the fan speed on current Pro consoles by choosing between a "Quiet" mode and the "Normal" mode, a lot cheaper than buying a new Pro.

    I don't think it's that simple, the new models use a different power supply as well.

    Fan ramps up when the temp sensors get to a certain level.

    Now the temp threshold is higher before the fan speeds up. Seems a bit dangerous but I'm sure they know what the chips can handle.

    I still think the big problem is that the thermal paste, pads on the ram chips and the way the are placed in the manufacturing process is the big problem. Replacing those properly makes a big difference.
