PlayStation 5 has three different cooling fan models
PlayStation 5 has been on sale for a period of time. At present, many regions are in short supply. However, players who received the goods also encountered headaches. The team at Les Numériques said in the news that their team bought 5 PS5s, and the test found that they were not as quiet as described on the Internet, so they disassembled these PS5 game consoles.
Les Numériques found that these PS5s have different fan models, and the appearance of the blades of these fans is also different, so the sound is different. Although this does not affect game performance, it also explains why some PS5 game consoles sound louder than others.
In the above figure, the noise of fan A is 39 dB, and the noise of fan B is 43 dB. The design of the fan blades of the two fans is different, one has 24 fan blades and the other has 17 fan blades.
More than that, Les Numériques saw multiple PlayStation 5 teardowns posted by Sony on the official YouTube channel, which means that Sony used at least three different fans for the PS5.
However, for ordinary players, the impact of different fans is not great, because when you play the game, you may not notice the sound of the fan at all.
