Thanks, I put a 500gb ssd in it lol


um 500 to 500 gb for minus 2-3 seconds on load times?  A 1tb would have been better since knowing your degree of skill with this kind of thing is very proficient  you will want to want to get more storage space soon anyways.

Ya I just put it what I had lieing around, this isnt the final build im working for yet, im just testing it out, thus the reason its on a Wet Bench which makes it easier for me to mess around with, but my final build might be totally dif. As for the SSD the main gain I saw with it was installing the firmware and updates are a whole lot faster, as far as game loading its nothing big at all. Like you said only 2-3 sec dif.

unless u can find a way to overclock the CPU, GPU and RAM Timing and overvoltage the thing, watercooling a closed console is still consider nothing more than a experiment...abeit an interesting one..

Yea well see, id love to do all that, but in that area, I am no expert. Im good at hardware modding, but not much as far as software or overclocking and such. So I would wait untill someone figures something like that out, then I would follow some tutorials to do it and test some more, but atleast I accomplished my goal of getting the system water cooled, regardless of it being oc'ed or not.  Smiley Happy

it's probably not too hard with the ps4 since all it's component are well known off-the-shelf components....unlike the ps3 where overclock the cell and threw off the synchronization timing of the SPU among others..

yea, good thing also with the PS4 was that it was a single GPU chip that needed cooling, no other chips required a block. BUT the PS3 case was so much easier to work with and you could have easily installed all this stuff inside the case, to keep it compact. Thats what sucked about the PS4 case for me, it has absolutely no extra room for anything lol.

Cool project and props for making it work but nothing I would ever want to do. My PS3 has run for 7 years with no additional cooling and never over heated and my PS4 has done some very long game sessions right from the start and I've never experienced any lag or different type of performance b/c of it.

 

Also there is no such thing as "heavy" or "more demanding games". All games will run the same on the PS4 regardless of what it is. Just b/c you play for a longer extended period of time does not mean the system keeps getting hotter and hotter. It all depends on how much ventilation it has from the start anyway. Once the fans kick on high and dissipate all the heat they need to the temps will fall back to previous levels and the fans may never kick on high anyway. Longer gaming does not = higher system temps. Is the longer you drive your car the hotter the engine gets? No... Once it reaches a specific temp it stays that way by means of the fan and cooling. Works the same way for a game system its just much more simple with just a fan.
