Maintenance store owner warns PS5 players of long-term vertical placement of the host easy to damage
Despite the lack of a real sense of exclusive next-generation masterpiece, but this still does not prevent Sony's PS5 in the global hot sales, the game console listed two years time sales of more than 30 million units, but recently, the PS5 cooling system design problems on the network spread, hope that PS5 users pay attention.
Recently, a repair store owner said that because of the PS5's serious design flaws, if players place the PS5 vertically for a long time, it may cause permanent damage to the machine.
This is mainly because Sony to press the heat of the chip used in the PS5, boldly used liquid gold as a thermal material, but because the liquid gold will become uneven because of the PS5 placement direction or because of poorly closed leakage, which leads to uneven heat dissipation in the PS5, affecting the chip cooling effect, or more serious leakage to other parts.
A French repair store owner revealed that the above problem is not an isolated case, as both digital and optical drive versions of the PS5 are at high risk of developing problems if they are left vertically for a long time.
According to him, the PS5's liquid gold seal can sometimes become damaged over time. If the player's PS5 is placed flat at this time, the problem is not big, but if it is placed vertically, then the liquid gold may slowly become less, resulting in uneven heat dissipation or infringement of other parts.
Sony has not yet responded to this issue.
