PS5 Cooling Praised for Being Quiet and Effective in New Previews

It seems Sony have taken some lessons from the PS4’s fan.

The PS4 has garnered a bit of a notorious reputation for being an unusually loud console due to its fan, and a much quieter cooling system that many have been hoping will be implemented in the PS5. Sony have suggested in the past that would indeed be the case, and now, a recent round of hands-on previews and impression on the console’s hardware by Japanese media seem to confirm that as well.

Dengeki and 4Gamer both recently published previews, and both claim that the PS5 doesn’t make any fan noise, and that the cooling system is quiet and effective. (translations via VGC). Both publications say that during their time using the console and playing various games on it (including the likes of Astro’s Playroom and Godfall), the console hadn’t made any noise at all. Both also claim that the console was cool to the touch and wasn’t giving off any noticeable heat.

And another one bite the dust.

So where are the System war hardware experts that claimed the PS5 would run hot or over heat because of its design.🤣

Finally some peace and quiet. The PS4Pro fan struggled hard during Fatalis fight in MHW.

Noise comes from heat. Heat comes from power *in most cases*. The PS5 has 9,2tflops. Why would it be noisy?

Have u ever cleaned it from dust? I hear so many people complaing about the ps4 being a "jet engine" while mine was more silent than the 360. Get yourself an air can and dedust that shit.

I would say that those games aren't really pushing the PS5 to it's limits to test it's graphical power and cooling solution but what do I know?

My PS4 Pro fans could go on enough to notice that fans are running in a quiet room but it never was noticeable over game audio. I have a later model Pro.

Can't beat quiet though so I'm glad to hear they have achieved that with launch hardware.

From my understanding, warned on spamming it in that thread. Just a meme mention is fine, i think?? You might not find it funny. Tormy might not find it funny. I do find it funny.

I think the XBsX has a better designed cooling system over the PS5 though. I think the PS5 has a lot of wasted plastic on it and I am not sure, looking at diagrams of it, that they made all that efficient of space. Also, most gaming consoles start out relatively silent, but how silent they stay as the console becomes a year or two or three old remains to be seen.

MS sucked until they decided to build the XboneX. That is where they got their shit together when it comes to creating proper systems. 360 was obviously way earlier.

They did. I fried two 360's myself. But we're at the end of 2020, if you didn't knew, and they've learned their lesson a long time ago.

I would argue they got it together with the One S actually, that thing had an incredible build.

The 360 was widely panned as a very noisy console during its life. Saying "the next generation Playstation wasn't even as loud as the previous generation's very noisy XBOX!" isn't exactly high praise.

No wonder it's so big. They probably put a bigger fan so it can run at lower speeds. My PS4 Pro was initially quiet but after a year it got really loud. Only time will tell

Nah, it is big so Sony can, like with every gen, release the slim version. Makes them money.

I crapped a bit on the og xbox 1 but that thing was very cool and silent compared to the PS4.

The PS4 fan sounds so bad and heats up a tiny room.

Given the size of the PS5, If Sony couldn't make it silent, there's something wrong with their engineers.

Launch pro here and the only game where I even heard my fan was in Ghost of Tsushima, because that game has some insane vista's and particle effects.

Later Pro models are quiet as a mouse, from what I can tell.

*Puts on headphones* errr what noise?

All jest aside, my launch PS4 nowadays playing latest AAA games really hits 100% fans at there maximum, it sounds like a small generator noise. Glad to know PS5 is built for silence when the fans hit at there maximum. Silence is Golden😉
