    Is your PS4 Loud?

    Banned
    In two minds about sending mine back. Fans are pretty loud from when you start playing games. PS4 is well ventilated in a black glass cabinet with about a doorstops space behind it.

    With 3 and a half months left on the warranty, should I send it back, or am I worrying over nothing?

    Mine is the same mine sits in a cabinet with about a foot of breathing space behind it but after 10 mins of playing the additional fans kick in . for long period of playing I have to take the console out of the cabinet and then I have no issues .

    this is why I know their isn't a problem and it is just ventilation issue so moving forward if you may need to move it

    Where do you move it to for a long period of time?

    When you do move it, is it silent?

    Hmmm, I'll try it now and have it in the middle of the room, but I still think it'll be loud. I'll post back.

    I took it out of the cabinet and even pointed a fan against the front of the PS4. Same noise levels.

    I think its because of the weather. Mine used to be very quiet but has become quite noisy lately.
