    Default PS4 overheating

    PS4 shuts down minutes after powering up with 'overheat error'

    Anyone know where I can have it checked out in Cape Town area?

    Minutes after powering up?

    So not even due to a heavy game?

    Thanks. That's what I figured.

    Contacted @Myth (he did the thermal paste for me the last time this happened), he's sorting me out.

    Awesome as ever.

    Edit: myth went from unavailable to available
