    PS4 overheating with Pcars !

    Hi,

    My PS4 is very hot and making a lot of noise (fan) each time I am playing Pcars. Even when I am in menu and not running, my PS4 seems to have its processor always at 100%

    Is processor occpancy optimised on PS4 ? I have some doubts...

    Hope this game will not damage my console....

    Waiting for a patch that may resolve this issue...

    Check the holes around the ps4, mine were filled with some dust that was easily removed

    Mine is the same, the game is just pushing the console. It is the graphics fan thats whizzing its balls off. Make sure there is no dust on your console and raise it up slightly to increase air flow if you can. It needs space at the back as well to vent all that hot air. It can handle it so long as there is good air flow.

    I have no dust arround holes and coparing to other games, my console is making too much noise. Even in menu the PS4 seems to be at 100%, it is not normal.

    It on an open TV support made from glass. The glass is very hot when the PS4 is running.

    There isn't enough air flow.

    What do you guys think of this? It's a piggyback intercooler.
