Ps4 1st gen thermal throttling

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Im playing fortnite on my ps4 temporarily and even though it's only 60 fps, i can really tell the difference when it underclocks and hits 45-50fps. The fan also gets really loud. Please help! I think I need to clean it but i dont know how.

AFAIK the PS4 is designed to shut down when overheating, not underclock.

The fact the fans are louder suggests the console is under a greater load, causing the slowdown, not that its throttling.
