I'll post a video for you guys I've got both killzone and callofduty now and it runs a hell of a lot more quite on cod then killzone but it runs a lot more quiter now on both I'll show you where I had it at and where I moved it too , it won't get loud for it to be a distraction gunnzie trust me on that it runs as silent as the ps3 slim
The PS3 slim wasn't silent and I owned 3 of them
There are YouTube videos showing this just google "PS4 Noise issue" I am going to take a video tonight after some more game play, mine is going back to Amazon and I will wait it out, most likely wait it out or try to find another one. My sounds louder than my Xbox and my PS3 runs nowhere near this loud.
Monsterchef: Interested as my PS4 is in the top open Rack of custom shelf and the thing is so loud it sounds like a frieght train! LOL I am tempted in putting in it the closet behind my custom cabinet because it is so loud, epecially on "Need for Speed". I will post my noise video issue later with a sound meter I have that measures db.
Depends which slim you had. My slim nigh completely silent, and I'm so picky about such things.
I have discovered that the PS4 runs significantly louder in vertical orientation vs horizontal. Absolutely huge difference. Playing Resogun in vertical orientation I would pause to switch the system to horizontal and then back again, and I'm much, much happier with the system horizontal because the fan doesn't go as ballistic due to heat reduction.
It makes PERFECT sense, though, since you can feel the air coming out of the right side when in horizontal mode. I think Sony is really pushing things when they say it can run in vertical orientation. Certainly is lessening the life of the system this way due to the extra heat generated.
