    Just chuck headphones on and problem solved
    It's 65db, that's not an issue that's solved with headphones. It seems to be worse in game menus than in-game too. CoD for example, isn't too bad in-game but in the loadout screens and in pre-game lobby it's far worse. Pressing the PS button doesn't work either, guess it still renders in background.

    Cleaning out fans didn't work either, think it's just bad programming where they forgot to cap FPS or something.

    My top is almost stuck like glue >_,< lol I watched a few youtube videos on how to take it off. I kinda wish they had a little button where you can press it so the top comes off instead of trying to pry it off with your fingertips.
    Yeah, it takes a fairly unreasonable amount of force to remove the cover, clips are sturdy and can take the force though.

    I would try and clean the heatsink as well to fix the problem but man that sounds difficult + voids Sony's warranty (may not matter with CGA overriding manufacturers warranties though, but then they could argue that you're not following normal operating procedure I guess?).

    Thermal paste is likely dried up.

    Any recommendations for smallish/cheapish wireless headphones compatible with PS4? Ideally able to remove the mic and fit a 5 year old.

    Last of Us 2 coming to PC?

    Naughty Dog just posted recruitment add looking for programmers that "have experience with AMD and Nvidia GPU's using the DirectX12 API, must be familiar with modern RDNA and CUDA architectures"

    I doubt it, but the PS5 will be powered by new RDNA architecture in its GPU, so could be that?

    They are asking for Nvidia graphics card driver and architecture experience. This hardware isn't in the ps5 or Xbox series x. If it's not Last of Us 2 then ND is working on some other game that's coming to PC

    Well after all that bother of taking off the ps4 pro's top it still makes a hell of a lot of noise after "cleaning" it. Oh well I'll have to bare the jet engine noise.

    I think they could be looking at getting new development tools or computers and want some people with that sorta experience. As maybe the development tools are different compared to the actual console.

    How did you "clean" it?

    The recommended basic process is

    Take it apart
    Remove the heatsink and fan
    Blow all the dust out of the case, heatsink and fan
    Apply new heat paste to the processor, clean the processor first
    Reseat the heatsink and fan
    Put back together

    If you want to improve it even further you:

    Use Liquid Metal instead of heat paste
    Replace the fan with an aftermarket higher quality fan
    Sand down the processor heatplate to make a smoother flatter surface

    Meh not gonna bother with all that bother of taking it all apart. I'd most likely **** something up doing that. I only opened the top off and tried to suck out the dust which was not much point as it didn't seem at all dirty.

    I don't trust myself in doing anything to the inside of anything tech related. Hence why I got a console in the first place.

    Anyone getting that back button attachement for the ps4 controller?

    Just cleaning out the dust, at best, can only make it sound like it did out of the box again and unfortunately PS4 pros are all loud to begin with especially the first generation

    Same result here by just cleaning the fans, and I'm not going to break the warranty seal until I know for certain how that all works with the CGA

    Use a small spray bottle of isopropyl alcohol or eyeglass cleaner and a cloth. I've never had issues with mine being oily though, no matter how long they've been sitting.

    I've had that with one of my PS3 ones about a decade ago and tried to find out at the time. The two internet theories are its either residual skin oils sort a breakdown of the rubber. Neither have a solid answer, because the former has happened to people with controllers they've hardly touched and the latter doesn't happen to every controller even ones stored together in the same conditions. My second PS3 controller only had it happen on one of the two sticks!

    Even just searching again now the same answers are still the only ones I could find.

    BP's answer is the right one though. Applies to the entire controller should you wish to clean it, or any electronics in general really.

    I've got a ps4 controller where the button is sticky as. Can't always get long lasting controllers these days without something going wrong with them.

    Funnily, there's some truth to that. PlayStation 4 Is the Most Popular Pornhub Console

    tbh it shocks me that people use the PS4 to surf the internet at all.

    as Blizzard famously (and stupidly) said, "do you guys not have phones?"
