Custom hardware designer says he will make water cooled consoles commercially available.
Interesting project, but wow thats horrendous lol
You thought the PS5 was big. This thing isn't big, it UUUUUUGGGEEE!
It’s pretty much the same size as the PS5...
With the white plastic casing it is the same size, if those were removed it would be quite a bit smaller, there are pictures of them side by side towards the end of the article.
"Interesting project, but wow thats horrendous lol" if the design speaks to you i guess. same with the original look. for me, both designs have extra material going beyond the core shape for my taste. the PS5 has a good core shape, as seen in the example - https://www.videogameschron... i would be most interested in seeing a concept that blends well with the core shape. my two cents.
It's smaller than the base PS5. O_o
It looks really cool actually.
Sony is gonna sue
Not sure you know how things work. People can mod consoles, it's not illegal.
But the article states he’s planing to make it commercial and sale them
@cell Technically not illegal, so long as he makes it clear that it's no longer covered by warranty and Sony is in no way liable for any issues.
@cell989 Still not illegal.
Yeah in Vietnam, good luck with that Sony.
Wow that looks ugly lol
If he had left off all the white plastic it would have looked better.
...why. It cools perfectly fine. Mine is basically silent
Plenty of reasons, heat is the enemy of any hardware, PC or console, this eliminates more heat and allows for less dust to be trapped inside the system as most of it is covered by a water block. 1 thing i learnt in my many years of gaming consoles don't like being used a lot everyday and degrade far quick than PC hardware does if anything this would only decrease failure rates, same reason they now use liquid metal and not normal thermal paste.
Good luck with all sorts of lawsuits lol. The company that was designing custom made skins got shut down by Sony before the console even released
DBrand is still selling black PS5 faceplates. They're completely sold out. They actually taunted Sony and dared them to sue.
I stand corrected. I remember a few months back some company making them and Sony wanted to shut them down. I feel like they ceased production for some time and I never followed up after that. That’s good to know though. Ty
Just when you thought the PS5 couldn't get any bigger or any uglier... If he removed all the plastic brackets and just had the transparent plastic it would look sweet. I miss transparent plastic 1990's electronics! Transparent N64 and GameBoy were awesome!
PS5 looks slick and very sleek. But this thing looks ridiculous.
Isn’t the stock liquid metal cooling better anyways? 🤷♂️
If it cooled all the parts of the PS5 it would be. But for some reason they left quite a few parts at the acceptable to borderline cooling level.
Liquid metal is only a thermal application to a component's die. Watercooling allows for superior transfer of heat from the gpu and cpu compared to that of a traditional air cooling solution. You can use liquid metal with a watercooling setup for better results. I have a full custom loop in my rig and my gpu temperatures never exceed 43c and my cpu temperatures never exceed 55c with my current fan curve. Cooler temperatures with higher performance threshold all while whisper quiet.
Linus is late to the party, stop messing around with solid gold controllers!
PS5 is cool, huge heatsink and liquid metal. Not sure why you need water cooling. Interesting as a project. but not needed.
I'm surprised no one notice he ditched the disc drive, maybe its cooler sure but its a lesser machine now.
But does it come in black?.....
That'll void your warranty right there.
This video makes me want to start wearing my high school class ring again.
