    Hey ladies and gentlemen. One of my hobbies is modding pc's and consoles. I normally liquid cool/overclock/pick parts and custom build for other people.

    This time I went nutts on my PS4 Pro because I was bored. All consoles are very cramped. Too much hardware stuffed into a tight space so they choke, just giving my own 2 cents about it with my mod, and it works very well. It's not very loud and I have little to no coilwhine in Pro patched games :)

    Here's a short description of my mods and a small gallery;
    It's modded with aftermarket 120x20mm 1mm thick thermal pads on the memory chips.
    Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste on the APU.
    9mm tall rubber feet on the bottom.
    Crucial MX300 525 GB SSD Sata 3 SSD. (Yeah the Pro has a sata 3 port)

    I cut a hole in the top cover with a dremel where I added a magnetic 240mm DemciFlex dustfilter (Can be taken on/off for cleaning)
    The whole casing is covered in custom cut carbon film.

    Enjoy

    I would have liked to use links that directly linked the image here but can't find one that works properly. I rarely upload pics on forums and I only know about this danish one and imageshack. If you have better suggestions please give me :p

    Seems like I got it working but it looks like a mess

    I started with cars, all the normal bolt ons but it's very expensive so I later moved on to pc's. Started with liquid cooling and it has moved onto pretty much any hardware that I can make better :p

    My main hobby will always be pc's but lately I branched out into consoles and I'm having alot of fun with it :D - I fixed quite a few of the 1st gen 1000 unit PS4's for people who were having heat/noise issues. Irl I do it for free for family/friends. It's just a hobby so it's not often that I take payment, I just enjoy it and it takes stress away from the daily life :p

    Also I have been a handyman since I was 17. Done carpenting, gardening, green keeping, construction work and mason work up untill I was 28 so I have always liked using my hands and tinkering with stuff. I recently had a bad shoulder injury and cracked a joint in 2 spots so I had surgery the 16th of december. I'm now going into physical therapist as a possible new job or electronical engineer :)
