Thanks!

 

Also quite neat about the circuit board design was the radial placement of the memory. Don't know if there is a technical reason for that, but it looked quite elegant. 

 

Design is growing on me.

 

 


I think you see that a lot in computer design, to ensure every component is the same distance and therefore signals reach components in sync.

I'm glad of the hoover holes, I had images of my PS5 becoming choked to death with cat hair as soon as I saw the amount of vents it has.

 

You would still need to take the fan off to clean the dusk stuck around it after a while. Nice to know that you can. The PSU looks a little fragile with a two pin connection.

the size of that fucking heatsink is impressive.

 

I mean, this full size gundam is also impressive.  Don't want it in my living room though!

Now that I've made a silly joke and posted an awesome giant Japanese thing...

 

The thought that's gone into that design is amazing, what a wonderful video.

When I started to watch it, I wanted to be all "yeah great Sony, so we can take it to bits, but can we see it, you know, turned on and perhaps showing something!?" but it's nice.

The attention to detail with the screw for the stand, and marking the position for the stand in horizontal formation with the Playstation logos is lovely (it looked like that's what they were for anyway).

Good news that there seems to be fairly easy access to the fans for cleaning when they get shitted up with dust anyway. It's just a shame that it's a 2 man lift.


Hope you’ve completed your Safe Lifting in the Workplace course.

I think you're probably supposed to blow the dust off the fan without removing it, using compressed air, and collect the dust from the holes.

There is two dusting holes. You only need to take the sideplates off. The dust from the fans ends up in the dustholes where you can vacuum it out.

Taking the fan off will invalidate your warranty, so not a good idea in the short term.

Lol

 

It might be the biggest console they've ever made but it certainly is also the best thought out and highest quality I've seen with respect to cooling and heat dissapation. I'm very pleasantly surprised

Intense energy to this image. This is a man who would not hesitate to do the same to you if you crossed him.

 

Basically he is saying that if you take the PS5 apart like this, he [i]will[/i] find you.

Microsoft trying a bit *too* hard now, methinks.

 

I wonder if it's secretly Don Mattrick running their twitch page, or maybe he has the log in details.

 

p.s. my apologies to the one Don Mattrick fan who is offended.

On the subject of cooling, apparently Sony will be using liquid metal instead of regular thermal compound:

I'm pleasantly surprised at the capaciousness of the M.2 expansion slot. Figured any drives with chunky heatsinks would be off the table, but it looks like it should accommodate a wide variety of form factors; the main benefit of this is a better array of prices.
