    Default PS4 Cleaning / Maintenance

    Sorry if this has been discussed elsewhere but I can't find anything on this. Am upgrading the HDD on the PS4 and have noticed it is quite dusty, also I've noticed it getting noisy when I play it. Have done a bit of googling and there seem to be a number of things out there regarding issues with the thermal paste used, methods of cleaning etc. Has anyone found what they believe to be definitive advice on all this? Am seeing lots of conflicting things for example one guide saying use compressed air, not to use a vacuum cleaner due to static electricity fears and another youtube video with a bloke using his household vacuum cleaner to get all the dust out!

    Any advice/experience on this would be appreciated.

    I use a hand vac to get all the dust out of the vents. Have done so since day 1.

    No issues at all

    I changed my HDD few months ago and when it was open also gave it a vac again with no issues.

    I have the vertical stand so not sure if that improves air flow but my has never been noisy

    Thanks mate. So is that just from the outside, on all sides?
