For all your technical questions about consoles, tv´s, accessoires, …
Has anyone here ever cleaned out their PS4 and refreshed the heat paste? If so, where do I find a good quality paste?
I cleaned mine this morning. Wasn´t really nescessary in the end, but now I know it´s easy I´d like to refresh the paste as well.
Good thread idea!
Anyone here know much about soundbars? We’ve been contemplating getting one for a while but the sound on our TV is getting sufficiently poorer as time goes on that I think it’s becoming more necessary of late. I’m looking at the Sonos Beam as it keeps coming up in articles that are looking at a lot of different types (including much more expensive ones) and it’s on sale here at the moment. Thing is our TV is a bit old by modern standards (got it 5 years ago, think it’s a 2017 model too) so I’m worried without a dedicated HDMI port for Dolby Atmos that it might be pointless if we don’t upgrade the TV too so I’m wondering if I should just wait.
I know nothing about the ps4 paste or sound bars BUTTTT i do want a decent surround at some point. I have redone my thermals on my old fat ps3, i’m guessing it was sorta similar, which paste did you use, artic 5?
I didn´t renew the paste yet, was actually asking which paste I should get.
All I did was open it up and cleaned out all the dust for now. Wasn´t much, which was expected since I´m a clean freak when it comes to my consoles and stuff. But got it second hand, so…
I´m not gonna wait “God knows how long” on Sony to make more official PS5 plates, so I´m about to pull the trigger on some (expensive ) dbrand darkplates. Check out their response to Sony´s legal case, it´s hilarious. Darkplates 2.0 » Special Edition Drop » dbrand
I´m torn between
- grey + green LED strips; resembling the look of the original PSX
- clear black N64 style + light blue LED strips
- matte black + dark blue LED strips
I would´ve bought the first option right away, but there´s no matching Dual Sense…
This would look really clean. I bet that would look great on a nice dark wooden surface too. I’m going to grab a translucent N64 style one when I do, but I’ve no idea what to go for. The green LED strips look so nice though.
Been having troubles with my “new” PS4 Pro… On occasion it freezes, on any game. I looked up possible causes. Overheating isn´t likely imo; it has happened after about an hour or so. Internet connection, but can´t see how that can freeze a single player game? Firmware is the latest. Vents and fan are super clean.
I´m fearing for my hard drive, as it looks like it happens when the game is (auto)saving… Any tips?
Model is CUH 7216b
How does it manage when manual saving, is there a way to disable auto-save for any of your games? Any chance you have any corrupted data on your HD which might be causing an issue? How much space do you have left?
Manual saving works fine. I´ve had this with every game that auto-saves actually. Sackboy, Dead Nation and now Death Stranding. Don´t think I can turn it off, but I´ll check. Usually a game just tells you it uses auto-save and that´s that…
How can I check this? IF I can check this.
I´d think I have enough space. Less than 25% of my drive is used.
If you have any corrupted data then it should show up when looking at saves and game data. I was going to say just uninstall and reinstall the game data but if it’s happening with every autosave game then I’m really not sure.
Hm, I think all the games I´ve been playing lately have auto-save. I´ve been playing DS for 3 hours now and no issues… Really weird.
