Sony often launches slimmer variants of their flagship consoles a few years after the launch of the original console, as gamers are likely aware. If history is any indication, Sony’s PlayStation 5, which launched in September 2020, may receive the same treatment. The issue with this is that it will probably take some time before it appears on store shelves. A YouTuber has already modified a PS5 to create a slimmer version as the general public waits for Sony to introduce the PlayStation 5 Slim.
PlayStation 5 Slim Edition
A 30-minute video showcasing what is apparently the first PlayStation 5 Slim in the world has been posted by Matthew Perks, better known for his YouTube channel DIY Perks. With the help of this initiative, Perks was able to reduce the console’s size from about four inches to under an inch.
Perks claims that in order to make the PlayStation 5 slim, the core PS5 components had to be enclosed in a copper frame, and the power supply and external cooling system had to be connected to the main board. Even if some could counter that the cooling system increases the size externally and defeats the goal of having a small PS5, this is still an intriguing proof of concept.
Although it was initially a failure, the specially designed water cooling system uses copper sheeting and eventually led to temperature improvements in comparison to the PS5. The temperatures of the RAM and VRM both decreased.
The video guides you through each stage of the PS5 Slim mod process, including potential hazards and early difficulties. You can watch the entire procedure in the video below, or you may follow the steps to make your own PS5 Slim.
