PS4 more quieter post firmware updates?

#1 Posted by ChoboBot (192 posts) -

I've noticed that my PS4 fans tend to go full throttle less often now sonce these firmware updates. Is it me or has anyone else experienced the same?

My PS4 does not sound like a jet anymore when playing Killzone!

@geraltitude: The ps4 dynamically changes its fan speed depending on how hot it gets. So depending on what game(s) your playing it might never get that hot. I know when I play BF4 it always spins up the fans pretty loud once I'm in game.

My PS4 is always quiet unless I play all day. Which happened once and it wasn't that loud.

I don't think I've ever noticed the fan on my PS4. I've heard the disc drive whirr as a disc starts spinning, but never the fan.

My fans kick on loudly add the system turns on initially. Then it goes pretty silent.

My fan was only noticeable in either a really quiet room or when I turned the system on its side. The fan would vibrate a little when the PS4 was standing vertically, so I just kept it lying down.

More quiter? TC needs to stop playing his damaged PS4 and hit the books for a bit.
