400°
17w ago - Hi guys, long time and here is a video of my (Frago) PlayStation 4 / PS4 Fan Mod demonstration for those interested!

Following up on the recent PlayStation 4 Thermal Images, I just received my PS4 like a lot of people and because I know that after 2-3 years the overheating problems will come I opened and I did the same mod like PS3 in PS4!!!

Why to leave my PS4 to be 47-48 Celsius when I can leave it 31-33? I don't want my motherboard and my CPU-GPU heated at all!!!

So Lets Start:

First see the video, you will see that with stock fan speed the PS4 reach from 45 to 48 Celsius in a not heavy game and you can see with fan mod and with 10% more fan speed the PS4 drop down to 31-33 Celsius with the same game.

Watch the video that I prepare for you and then look at pictures for guide:

What I Used:

  • 1m thick cable
  • 1 Trimmer 220k for fan control

Guide:

I took the grey cable from motherboard...

Download: hfs.rar (Http File Server v2.2f - no setup) / BiteYourPlayer.rar

To quote, roughly translated: The new PlayStation 4 is equipped with a web browser from all over, maybe one of the fastest on a console from the living room, and so that BiteYourConsole jumped at the potential offered by a language such as HTML5.

With a speech of this magnitude we were able to make a simple but potential movie player in mp4 format (format commonly used for watching movies via smartphone and PlayStation Portable).

To run the application needs a Http Server, we have chosen HTTP File Server (HFS) that once started will allow us to be able to watch our video from any device connected to our Wi-Fi network.
