Why is my ps4 fan so loud even in apps
After my day one ps4 gave me the blue light of death I thoroughly cleaned it from top to bottom, including the fan and the heatsink, changed the thermal paste and added washers under the apu clamp. My ps4 worked as good as new.
Fast forward few weeks later i got the Blue light of death again, tightened the screws and it worked again but this time the fan went crazy. It's idle only when I'm the ps menu but it sounds like a jet engine even in apps like netflix.
I also noticed if I tighten the clamp screws too much my power supply starts to make a high-pitched sound and I can't turn on the console until I loosen them. (Which may cause the loud fan noise)
I'm pretty sure i put everything back as it's supposed to be and redid the paste the right way. Has anyone had a simmilar problem or has any idea what can I do to bring back my console to a playable state?
Sorry for the long post!
Is this a good question?
