I remember you saying something very rude to me for being concerned about the cooling of the PS5 before it came out, and now you post things like this. You are too funny.
Is it sad that we’re here concerned/worried about tempts that should have been addressed initially before it’s release? I know atm we’re just guinea pigs and they’re collecting data on fan speeds and temps....and the fact that some of the SSDs don’t even exist, it’s all just a theory.
but what can a firmware update really do, make it spin faster when needed?
but honestly atm i don’t need one yet lol
This is why I want a drive with extra cooling.I have an M.2 drive in my PC and it does have a cover on it for passive cooling I guess. Not sure how hot those drives normally get though.
Edit: then I find this article that the shield might cause it to get hotter lol. My board is newer than this so not sure if they've changed the shield since then: https://www.pcgamer.com/msis-m2-shield-shown-to-raise-ssd-temps-and-could-lead-to-throttling/
They recommended not using a heat sync if it touches the cover or casing in any way, it's designed for air from the fan to blow through the expansion bay.
That’s kinda weird, no? Wouldn’t it extract the air instead?They recommended not using a heat sync if it touches the cover or casing in any way, it's designed for air from the fan to blow through the expansion bay.
Translated from a Japanese interview, btw if the heat sink doens't touch the shell it's fine but if it makes contact that's a problem.That’s kinda weird, no? Wouldn’t it extract the air instead?
It, the ssd slot, is in the front, the ps5 fan pulls in air from those front and top vents and vents the hot air out back.
In addition, it is well known that heat generation under high load is a major problem for M.2 SSDs that support PCIe connection. Some PC motherboards have a heat sink for M.2 SSD, but what kind of device does PS5 use?
Mr Otori: There are two exhaust holes for the SSD slot for expansion. Since the expansion slot is near the intake fan, it has a structure that sucks heat from the exhaust hole with negative pressure
