If your PS4 gets hot or the fan is loud, take this very Seriously, I need to bold that and underline it!

If you not getting your PS4 console serviced at least once a year it won’t last very long and will cause you problems in the long run.
Why does the PS4 get hot or the fan get loud?
75% of the time it’s because the PS4 is full of dust and the fan and heatsink is clogged up with dust and fluff
Here’s a pic of a PS4 heatsink that is clogged up:
On Top of this problem the thermal paste between the main processor and the heatsink probably also needs to be replaced and is dried out.
When the PS4 gets too hot, it will also affect the solder balls under the processor.
See pic below of the bottom of a PS4 processor:
When the processor gets hot and then cools down again, these little solder balls crack.
Here’s a picture taken with a microscope:
Once this happens you will get what we call the Blue Light Of Death.
Don’t worry it’s not as bad as it sounds, we just redo the processor for you with new solder balls again.
