has anyone here tried to make a hole on top and below PS4 case and using dust filter to prevent overheating issues.

does it help to reduce the heat? and what thermal paste / pad you are using?

Yeah, making holes certainly helps to counter overheating problems, however always cover the hole with a napkin or something when not using the ps4 as it becomes an easy entry point for dust.

Also the hole should be made above the fan to increase air circulation.

Using the stock thermal paste doesn't cause any problem.

i drilled 20 holes on top where the fan is

it does help a lot for the cold air to get in
but its still like a jet engine for me , so i'll need new paste i guess but after that it should be fine :)

Do a thermal paste change first and decide if that is sufficient enough. I had the jet engine sound and after putting new paste it was quiet and cooled much better. I recommend artic mx4 because it doesn't dry up. Definitely do a paste change because when I did mine there was virtually no paste there at all and why it was so loud.

First of all do a deep clean of your ps4 clean the heatsink from any clogged up dust. Remove the old thermal paste with isopropyl alcohol and add new paste I prefer Kryounaut by thermal grizzly. if you still have loud fan noise make your diy holes and fan. remember air should be going into the console above where your stock ps4 is.

or here is an idea where you dont have to cut holes. on the back side of your console where your hdmi and power cable ports are place fans that suck out air hence you will need much smaller fans than normal pc cpu fans. laptop fans does the job and its 5v so you can plug into your usb port on the console
