Briefly About the Cooling Performance of The PlayStation 5 once again because we have Mr. ootori during his recent outlet 4gamer interview. letting us know and I think that this is relevant to some people that the cooling performance for the PlayStation 5 is going to be the same regardless of whether you decide to stand it up vertically or lay it down horizontally.
There are some people who do care about that and there are some people who are going to have no choice but to lay it down horizontally or stand it up vertically and they don’t want to have to worry about the idea of the console getting much hotter if you decide to go one way or the other.
So, this is exactly what he said in his interview he said this is a frequently asked question from the designer’s point of view there is no difference in cooling performance between vertical and horizontal installation I think some people think that the heat dissipation efficiency should be higher in the vertical installation due to the chimney effect.
However, in a cooling system with an active fan the electric fan the chimney effect is at the measurement error level it works according to the specifications in both horizontal and vertical installation. personally, I like the vertical placement where the top and bottom of the PlayStation logo can be seen correctly.
So, you know he prefers it to be stood up vertically but obviously there’s going to be many people who have no choice but to lay it down horizontally and I just think that this is something small that is worth pointing out to let everybody know hey if you’re somebody who cares about that if you were concerned that maybe the console was going to get much hotter laying down on its side rather than standing vertically. According to Mr. ootori here you do not have to worry about that it is going to be the same regardless of how you choose to position it.
