Topic: PS4 overheating after applying new thermal paste

Posts 1 to 4 of 4


For some years now my PS4 has been sounding like a fighter jet when ever I play on it. So I finally decided to open it up and clean it. So I opened it up, cleaned everything, replaced the fan and thermal paste. Now everything turns on but whenever I try to play a game my PS4 starts to overheat and the fan starts speeding up a lot. Any solutions on a fix or where I went wrong??

I think by opening the console up like that the warranty seal would be broken, so if it is still under warranty it would be null and void now.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.

@ChildishJJ01 did you clean everything up properly before putting the new paste on? You don’t want to use a lot but need to have good, firm contact. I assume you checked out a video or something giving you some instructions? Sounds like you’ve probably done it before on PCs so I you probably know the drill

I guess just having another go in the first instance is probably the best bet? I don’t really know how the heat sink is physically secured over the cpu on the PS4 to be honest.
