Buying a PlayStation 5 has phenomenally sucked. Thanks to sky-high demand and scalpers’ greed, getting one of these feels impossible. But what if you got the console and decided to custom build a custom liquid cooling system for it? What might that look like?
Air cooling is the more conventional method of cooling a console. Liquid cooling, meanwhile, uses moving water to remove heat, and Nhenhophach says that "this is just the very first version of water-cooled PS5, there will be so many more versions."
“There’s no way to measure precisely the temperature of the APU core of PlayStation 5 and memory chips ... [But] based on water temperature and backplate temperature, we can gauge the performance of this system in some way.”
