Generally, a few years after Sony’s mainframe is released, the manufacturer will push a thinner and lighter version of Slim. But a similar situation has not happened in the PlayStation 5 generation. After all, the production of the PS5 itself is still difficult to guarantee today. In this case, some people think of being self-reliant. A few days ago, a YouTuber named DIY Perks successfully transformed a “PS5 Slim” with a thickness of only 1.9cm based on the standard PS5.
In order to achieve this goal, he replaced many components, some of which were self-made. But to say the biggest change is the heat dissipation and power system. DIY Perks made a water cooling solution, and removed the power supply and put it into a long box that can be hidden behind the TV. From the video below, you can see that this dude still encountered a lot of difficulties during the transformation process, but fortunately the end result is satisfactory. In fact, according to his test, the temperature control effect of “PS5 Slim” is better than the original PS5 when running “Horizon: Western Forbidden Land”.
Of course, there is only one such “PS5 Slim”. If you are not strong enough, just wait for Sony to update the product.
