It’s not clear why Sony changed the heatsink so early in the PS5’s life cycle, but Evans noted that its unit got hotter as a result — with rear exhaust temperatures rising 3 to 5 degrees. It may be due to manufacturing difference.

Sony uses this heatsink to cool the PS5, and the console features a heat pipe and airflow designed to create the same level of steam room performance.
