A working PS5 less than 5cm thick? It’s possible to prove it with the video of this YouTuber who just made a working PS5 Slim.
While everyone is talking about the PS5 Pro, a more powerful model that could handle ray tracing better, one fan has just managed a small feat. With a little knowledge and ingenuity, he managed to create a truly slim PS5 Slim.
A PS5 Slim with 2cm thick water cooling
With its imposing stature, the PS5 is one of the greatest consoles ever created. A size that rightly often earned it the title of monolith. However, a certain Matt from the YouTube channel DIY advantages managed to create a new model: a functional PS5 Slim just 2 cm thick. A result he was only able to achieve by removing almost all of the console’s ventilation elements and replacing them with a custom system.
This PS5 Slim is therefore equipped with a system of water cooling homemade that improves the thermal performance of the console. Result: If you play Horizon Forbidden West for several hours, the SoC is at about 65 degrees maximum compared to about 75 degrees on the original console. In other words, this handcrafted PS5 Slim has managed to reduce chip temperatures by 13%, memory by 45% and VRM by 38%. Obviously not everything is perfect, especially as the creator cheats with an imposing power supply designed to be out of sight. But we can only welcome the result.
