Anyone know why my ps4 after a year of silence in rest mode now runs like a jet engine. I’ve opened it up and there is absolutely no dust build up at all. It is crystal clean.

It’s quiet for the first 30 mins when started from cold then just revs up into a jet engine.

The box itself still feels cold on the outside and the airflow is coldish also.

Had it close to 1.5 years, but not a constant game player, only got two games thus far, but use to leave it runnng in the rest mode when wasn’t using it, then one night while in rest mode it suddenly roared into a jet engine.

I never had it internet connected so wasn’t doing any downloads that I didn’t know about.

I have seen lots of posts about people cursing Sony about their crap thermal paste so I’ll try that once I figure out how to get at the chip.

Dust build up, try taking the cover off and giving it a light vacuum

you shouldn't vacuum as that can create static, best to used a can of compressed air and blow it out

Sounds like a bad temp sensor.

yeah I wouldn't leave my ps4 pro in rest mode, in rest mode it's only half off you can still hear it running unlike a pc in sleep mode.

Replaced the thermal paste and it did not make any bit of difference.

There is no dust and no heat as the air is cold and blowing like a gale.

Any other ideas ?

How does it know that it’s too hot anyway, is there a heat sensor, if so can it be replaced.

I doubt it would be a case for CGA as it's not faulty and still working normally except for the loud fan.
