PS4 Fan Noise

11
Posted 23rd Nov
Hi, I bought a brand new PS4 Slim.

When in idle, so just standby and downloading, I can hear the fan. Kinda like a mechanical noise. It's not loud, but I can hear it from across the room.

Is this normal?

Thanks

Yes.
Yes. It's a fan. Fans make noise when they spin. Fact!
Yes, my xbox one wakes me up with fan noise.
Yeah that’s normal the PS4 fan is loud in comparison to the Xbox

Rather than it being a normal fan sound though, it's like a vibration sound?

I have only had the PS4 pro and that definitely had a vibration like sound.

Try sitting it on something like a book or a mat of some sort, it may stop the vibration.

I guess it's usual then.

It's standing vertically on the official stand

Worth trying it out of the stand to see if it's the stand that is amplifying the vibration.
I think it's just how the fan is. It's not ramped up and gone really loud when playing Spiderman all evening which is a good thing.
