A modder has created his own custom liquid-cooled PS5 console and has turned plenty of heads in the process. He has deconstructed a Sony console and re-made it using completely custom parts including the integration of a bespoke cooling system to stunning effect.

The Sony PS5 console launch, while very successful, hasn’t been without controversy. Its design has been criticized given its similarity to modern routers while it is also very large, particularly when compared with its primary competition in the form of the Xbox Series X. Although more powerful, Microsoft was able to create a more compact design thanks to a particularly efficient cooling architecture. Comparatively, the PS5 can get quite hot raising concerns by some about its medium to long-term durability.

A console modder from Vietnam, Nhenhophach, has sensed an opportunity to address these concerns, whether real or perceived, to develop his own solution. He has developed a completely bespoke solution that involves completely dismantling an original PS5, removing its components, creating custom case parts and developing a customized liquid-cooling system. The result is undeniably striking and demonstrably improves system temperatures and, quite likely, sustained gaming performance too -- although that can only be speculated at this stage, but it is what we typically see when liquid-cooling is applied to gaming rigs.

Embedded below the article is a 13-minute video stepping viewers through the process. If all of that seems too much for you to handle (and let’s face it would be for all but for the very few who have the time and access to 3D printing equipment) the modder says that he has plans to start selling his design to the public in the description below his YouTube channel. Sony will likely step in to try to stop it from happening as it did with at least one company planning on selling custom plates for the PS5 to replace the standard white ones that come with it. That, of course, would be a shame because this is undoubtedly the coolest PS5 out there -- in more ways than one.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
