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.

After doing the 1.51 update my ps4 seems to run a bit quieter. Here is a video of the fan noise it makes after 30min of killzone singleplayer.

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.
