Did Sony change the launch PS4 fan curve?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So recently my buddy gave me his launch PS4 for Christmas which is pretty awesome honestly but I could tell the thermal paste was bad because the fans went crazy whenever you did anything. So after opening the system and applying new thermal paste I’m noticing behavior. When I start a game the fans will ramp up really high for a good 3-5 min before they normalize back to acceptable noise level. Is this a new fan curve Sony patched in or is this how it’s always been? Because I’m pretty sure I don’t remember it acting like this.

I think It's normal, the ps4 get's noise whenever it requires a bit more processing, well atleast that what my friend ps4 does and he also has a day 1 launch Ps4

Did Sony  change the fan curve or did you tinker with the PS4 and as such it has now different temp readings than before and therefore acts differently? 

 

Tough one!

Hmm, you cleaned it out and applied new thermal paste... hmmmm, wonder why the fan curve changed.

 

My PS4 did that.  I ordered it from GameStop and it came dirty (first bad luck I ever had with a pre-owned/refurbished console from them).  I took it apart, dusted it out, applied new thermal paste, and it doesn't sound like a jet engine anymore. 

 


Currently focusing on my video game collection.  Here's what I got so far.  

Keep in mind I'm still grabbing multiplatform games on PC, unless they happen to be cheaper on PS4 or Switch (such as RDR2 as of right now)

 

Currently Playing:  

  • New Super Mario Bros - DS
  • Persona 5 - PS4
  • Splatoon 2 - Switch
  • Super Mario Maker 2 - Switch

Just beat:

(will be reset at the beginning of each month)

 

  • River City Girls - Switch

 

How many games I'm needing:

  • DS: 53
  • Wii: 41
  • 360/PS3: 84
  • 3DS: 60
  • Wii U: 13
  • PS Vita: 34
  • PS4: 20
  • Switch: 17
