I’m clueless with electronics but my PS4 was on its death throes with overheating. I read this guide and watched the video (coffee break included) and got to work. The only trouble I had was that my husband (he’s a good guy normally) decided to help and used too big pliers and broke the connector between the power supply and PS4. Ok, so 5 days wait for replacement. I replaced the fan, thermal paste, and pads and put it back together (shaking like a leaf in a hurricane). It’s quiet and works thanks to ifixit.com. Thank you so much!

This was super helpful! For the power supply, I was trying to pull at the socket the cable was plugged into (same color plastic). I think it would have worked better just wiggling the cable.

Also, T8 worked fine, but putting it back together, I noticed T9 was better fit, so if you have a T9, use that instead. After cleaning and repasting, it’s so much quieter. Thanks!

Great guide. I did have a little difficulty getting the power supply connector removed, but I tried to be patient and eventually got it. Thanks!
