Check the cooling fan for signs of dust

If you’re wondering if your console is in need of a deep clean, we suggest removing the side panel (PS4 & PS5) and inspecting the cooling fan. If you see anything more than a light dusting, then there’s a good chance the inside of the console will have a lot more dust.

Removing the cooling fan & shell

After removing the side panels, we can then start the disassemble process. 

We remove the cooling fan and the top shell which reveals the inner top side of the console.

Further signs of dust

As you can see there is a lot of dust inside this console. The top heat sink and disk drive is surrounded by dust build up.

This also gives us a sneak peak into the bottom side of the console which is looking very dusty too.

Removing the disk drive - Continue disassembly

Next, we remove the disk drive and continue disassembling the console. Once we have removed all the relevant screws, we’re ready to take out the main board.

Mid section, motherboard & heat sink

This is where the dust builds up to create “dust carpets” which block the vents on the heat sink. Having dust build up around the heat sink will impact the consoles ability to disperse heat, making it harder to keep cool.

This is why it is important that a console is fully dismantled to clear out all of the dust, rather than just cleaning the cooling fan.  

Power supply & remaining shell

After removing the motherboard and mid-section we are left with the power supply and remaining shell. The power supply vent is another prime spot for dust build up. 

It can be dangerous having such a large build up of dust on the power supply vents. The power supply naturally gets warm while in use, with this much dust build up, the power supply will run hotter and could cause overheating issues. 

After deep cleaning all the parts, we reassemble the console.
