Einführungsvideo

Einleitung

Die Videogame-Welt wandelt sich sehr schnell. Die Hersteller mussten Halbzeit-Auffrischungen nachschieben, um mit 4K-TVs und VR-Brillen mitzuhalten. Im letzten Monat haben wir die PS4 Slim auseinander genommen, und jetzt kommt die dritte Auflage dieser Generation dran. Im Spielen sind wir vielleicht Amateure, an das Zerlegen der PlayStation 4 Pro gehen wir aber ganz professionell ran.

Das Spiel ist eröffnet! Bleib dran mit Facebook, Instagram oder Twitter, um alle neuen Teardowns von Spielkonsolen und VR-Hardware zu sehen.

Dieser Teardown ist keine Reparaturanleitung. Um dein PlayStation 4 Pro zu reparieren, verwende unsere Fehlerbehebungsseite.

    • Es handelt sich ja um die dritte Version der PS4, vielleicht sollten wir sie PS4 3 nennen? Egal, hier sind die technischen Daten::

    • 8-Core AMD "Jaguar" X86-64 CPU, getaktet mit 2,1 GHz (vorher 1,6 GHz)

    • 4.2 TFLOPS AMD Radeon Grafik

    • 8 GB GDDR5 RAM + 1 GB DRAM

    • 1 TB Festplatte, entnehmbar und aufrüstbar

    • 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Ethernet und Bluetooth 4.0 (LE)

    • Blu-ray × 6 CAV, DVD × 8 CAV

    • Hamburger trifft auf Big Mac — die Pro Version hat eine Lage mehr als die Slim Version. Sie ist also überall ein bisschen dicker.

    • Dieses Ungetüm hat immer noch den Aufdruck PlayStation 4, aber unsere Modellbezeichnung ist CUH-7015B. Wir erblicken einige "Garantie erlischt bei Entfernen" - Aufkleber (Buuuh) und Unmengen von Anschlüssen (Juhuuu!) :

    • Stromversorgung

    • HDMI 2.0

    • PlayStation-Erweiterungsport

    • S/PDIF optischer Audioausgang

    • USB 3.0

    • Ethernet

    will you teardown the High speed HDMI cable?

    • In unbekanntem Gelände ist eine Karte sehr nützlich.

    • Wir haben unsere Freunde bei Creative Electron angerufen und sie haben uns ihre Röntgenbilder zur besseren Orientierung gemacht.

    • Was wir im Moment zu finden erwarten sind... Bienen? Und einen Riesenlüfter. Ich bin nicht der einzige, der Bienenwaben erkennen kann, oder?

    • Diese Dreidecker-Konstruktion unterscheidet sich ein wenig von ''ersten'' vierten PlayStation, die wir zerlegt haben, das hält aber unsere Teardown-Ingenieure nicht auf — wir drehen die Konsole um, ohne Zeit zu verschwenden, lassen den ersten Deckel aufspringen und tauchen in das Durcheinander ein.

    • Eine einzige Standard - Kreuzschlitzschraube #0 steht zwischen uns und dem Triumph eines Festplattentauschs. Genau das meinte ich!

    • Die Möglichkeit, etwas auszutauschen ist wunderbar, und es ist eine lange Tradition: bei jeder Playstation mit Festplatte kann der Benutzer selbst die Festplatte auswechseln.

    • So war das bei der "original" PlayStation 3

    • ... und der Slim

    • ... und der Super Slim

    • ... bis hin zur originalen PlayStation 4 und PlayStation 4 Slim.

    Replacing the internal hard drive doesn't break warranty and it gives the users the option to cheaply upgrade to a larger drive or maybe even go with a SSD drive to take advantage of the SATA3 controller in PS4 Pro. If a SSD is to expensive, there are SSHD options, eg. like the new Seagate Firecuda 2TB SSHD.

    Hoder Jensen - Antwort

    Can the PS4 Pro handle the thicker 4tb laptop drives? 15mm thickness. It took some improvisation to get the drive into my launch day PS4

    Justin Rasmussen - Antwort

    Same question.

    Does PS4 PRO accepts 15mm HDDs?

    Vadim Naliusnij -

    You could also put a HDD in the 'fat' PS2s!

    Ben Shepherd - Antwort

    Which worked great for game backups even though it was originally meant for one of the Final Fantasy games or the PS2 Linux Kit.

    • Nur wenige Kreuzschlitzschrauben später ist das 2,5" HGST HTS541010A9E680 Laufwerk von seiner Behausung befreit.

    • Das PlayStation-Team prahlte ja mit der SATA III Unterstützung des Pro, diese Festplatte aus dem Regal ist aber mit 3,0 Gb/s angegeben (SATA II).

    • Oder etwa doch? Verschiedene Online - Quellen besagen, dass dieses Ding eine 6,0 Gb/s HDD wäre. Wie auch immer, mit 5400 UpM kann diese Festplatte niemals SATA III Geschwindigkeit erreichen und ist diesem Laufwerk aus 2013 sehr ähnlich.

    • Keine Angst — bewaffnet mit den richtigen Werkzeugen und etwas Geschick (und einem nagelneuem 6.0 Gb/s SSD), kannst du deine Ladezeiten halbieren und schnell wieder ins Spiel kommen.

    hitachi hdd is best. btw, no mechanical hdd reached full sata2 speed yet. So for mechanical HDD, no point to talk about SATA3.

    Will O - Antwort

    并这不是所有机型都是hgst,实际使用toshiba的机型可能更多.换过3台不同版本的pro,包括made in jp的版本都是toshiba的hdd.

    phenomx100 - Antwort

    • Wie erwartet müssen wir diese "Warranty void if seal removed" ("Garantieverlust bei Entfernen" ) - Aufkleber ablösen, bevor wir weiterarbeiten können.

    • Zu dieser Rechtsverletzung kommt noch eine kleine Beleidigung, die Schrauben unter dem Aufkleber sind Sicherheits Torxschrauben — speziell entwickelt, um dich rauszuhalten.

    • Zum Glück ist auch die fieseste Schraube für unser 64 Bit Driver Kit kein Ding. Wenn das Gehäuse aufgeknackt ist, können wir das große metallene Schutzblech ausbauen.

    • Leider ist das Einzige, was wir sehen, die Rückseite der Hauptplatine.

    • Wir haben ja Erfahrung mit der PS4 Slim, also drehen wir alles herum und schauen mal nach, ob das Gras auf der anderen Seite grüner ist...

    At least tell us the size of the screw and locations. Terrible guide so far.

    • Mit dem Biest auf dem Rücken lässt sich das gegenüberliegende Panel nach mühseliger Hebelarbeit öffnen - es gibt aber keine "Warranty void" - Aufkleber!

    • Ohje, auch das Entfernen dieses Panels ist nicht die erhoffte Lösung um reinzukommen. Wir können das Netzteil rausholen, aber sonst nichts.

    • Der Lüfter lässt sich zwar von hier aus nicht entfernen, aber Reinigen geht schon. Vielleicht dürfen wir diese "Nichtgarantieverletzungszone" deswegen betreten.

    It's cool that you can replace the PSU without voiding the warranty

    Ben Shepherd - Antwort

    Actually it seems the PSU is secured with a couple of screws from the bottom, and the only way to get to those is by removing the bottom panel and pulling off the warranty stickers.

    Jeff Suovanen - Antwort

    there`s two posts from this side for the screws- one is just below the guy`s index finger

    Colin gettler - Antwort

    Yeah, I’m wondering too about the function of the metal shield above the PSU. Could it be some shield preventing elec from jumping out of the top cover? The shield becomes really hot. I would like to try to add an Intel Cpu cooler on this metal shield without top cover to see how well it transfers the heat. Would the heatsink be electrified when PS4’s running?

    Peter Johansson - Antwort

    How much space is there between top lid and PSU top?

    I’m sure the metal shield on top is a heatsink for the PSU and I would like to add 5mm height PCB heatsinks to it. Even if it doesn’t fit I will cut a large hole in the back of the top cover, and just add a washable dustfilter. I still think an extra fan should be in the back but it could be on top too

    • Das obere Panel haben wir ja entfernt, schauen wir mal nach dem Netzteil.

    • Das 2013er Modell hatte in der Spitze 165 W, dieses Netzteil liefert 289 W (1,5 A bei 4,8 V +23,5 A bei 12 V).

    • Gemäß den offiziellen technischen Daten zieht die PS4 Pro insgesamt 310 W Gesamtleistung. Der Verlust entsteht vielleicht beim Umwandeln von Wechsel- in Gleichstrom.

    • Und nun die Preisfrage: "Warum ist diese Konsole so viel größer als das Original?"

    • Wir haben zum Vergleich die Netzteile der PS4 Pro (links) und der originalen PS4 (rechts) aufgereiht. Im Gewicht sind nur 74,2 g Unterschied zwischen den beiden Einheiten, die nötige Heatpipe und der Lüfter geben doch noch eine Menge Zeugs bei der Pro dazu, damit die Wärme der zusätzlichen Grafikleistung abgeführt werden kann.

    Good design and quality Delta PSU.

    Shane - Antwort

    Is it 110 and 220 voltage???

    Faisal - Antwort

    I love how somebody writing about tech on a tech repair website states that the ps4 pro has an additional gpu. But not its always been an apu with a cpu and GPU on the same die that sir or madam tells me you have no idea what you are talking about I was even messaging somebody else that has a tech repair/refurbish and general testing and what not channel on youtube and he didnt know that the noise coming from my ps4 was coil whine coming from an inductor now I just get online and look up everything myself and can now do his job better than him he was also very short with me but you know little man syndrome.

    Rodney Bronson - Antwort

    I think this was just poor choice of words in the original teardown—it referred to the heat generated by all the additional graphics power, and didn’t literally mean there was a second GPU in there. But I can see why it sounded that way. (Then again, to be fair, this teardown was done the morning the system first launched, at which point there was still speculation about a possible mirrored GPU—so maybe the author was just having fun with the possibility, since no one outside Sony knew what the next steps in the teardown would reveal in that respect.) At any rate, Step 10 puts any doubts about a second GPU to rest. Meantime, I’ve updated the verbiage to eliminate any confusion on this step.

    • Das Fehlen weiterer Schrauben auf der Netzteilseite der PS4 Pro hat uns ausgebremst, wir drehen den Kasten also wieder um und wenden unsere Aufmerksamkeit der Hauptplatine zu.

    • Unter einer Abschirmung über der CPU finden wir diese coole X-förmige Halterung, ähnlich der in einer anderen Konsole.

    • Und direkt darunter stoßen wir auf eine Abdeckung aus Kunststoff und Metall, die aussieht wie die Version eines Pizza Savers für Elektrogeräte, welche die Rückseite der Platine vor der Halterung des Kühlkörpers schützen soll.

    • Wir heben die Hauptplatine hoch und legen noch einige weitere Vorrichtungen zur Wärmeregulierung frei. Besonders hervorzuheben sind ein riesiger Kupferkühlkörper und spezielle Pads für sechs Chips auf der Hauptplatine.

    what is the size of that backplate X? i wanna mount an AIO watercooler. What size do i need?

    Davorii - Antwort

    from what i read the mounting holes should have a distance of 60mm

    sepiah37 - Antwort

    How about the orientation of backplate X?

    In my experience, in your picture is assembled reversed, in fact, if you reverse with center sphere against the protection plate, you will see screw mark on the corners…

    My PS4 pro have fan speed/loud problems (very fast and loud, 70db with Wolfenstein 2, the internet is full of people with this problem ) and i have solved replacing thermal paste and assembling backplate like your picture… i think this assembling way is more efficient with an optimal pressure distribution of cpu against heatsink, standard assembling put all pressure on the center of chipset but perimeter didn’t good match with heatsink.

    After this correction, my PS4 Pro (with Delta fan) reach 50db as maximum limit and high speed rotation period are less…

    I think it’s a very importat question and require an investigation, no one speak about this on internet.

    Davide - Antwort

    I measured the mounting holes. It’s exactly 62mm.

    • Cypress CYUSB3312 USB 3.0 Kontroller

    wheres the second GPU chip?

    xtphty xtphty - Antwort

    there is none, just one chip (APU)

    sepiah37 - Antwort

    Fairchild semiconductor use thermal pads?

    Charls - Antwort

    @charls yes. if you look on the metal plate, there’s a thin metal strip that pads adhere too. i’ll be doing a breakdown this weekend to upgrade the paste and pads, but the pads on the fairchilds are different than the gddr5 pads. likely i’ll replace all of them with the fujipoly 17w/mk, assuming they are also 1mm, but the fairchild pads may already be a quality material

    Chris Stosberg - Antwort

    Can't see storage ic, is there one?

    Or is it integrated to some other chip?

    Александр Масленников - Antwort

    When others say it has a second GPU. It actually one GPU that has both the standard PS4 GPU/PS4 Pro GPU setup, it has the ability of been able too turn one or the other off, so it can mimic the stanard PS4 or function as the PS4 Pro

    QUOTE

    Instead of using an entirely new GPU, Cerny said the PS4 Pro is using a "double-sized one." In effect, the new console has a second, identical GPU configured next to the original, with a 14 percent boost in frequency to 911MHz, which more than doubles the processing power of the Pro. While the standard PS4 produces 1.8 teraflops, the PS4 Pro achieves 4.2 teraflops.

Can anyone confirm if the GPU in this Pro is actually a Radeon RX 480 put together with the Jaguar cores?

Kenneth Rodriguez - Antwort

Its got 2304 cores so same as RX 480 but seeing as how they need to maintain compatibility id say the shaders aren't true GCN 4 like the 480 but still GCN1.1 like the original PS4.

i just bought a ps4 here in japan. i just want to know if can i use it in 220volts? thanks

Is the PS4 pro power supply a dual voltage

dejinas - Antwort

Yes. When you zoom-in left picture in step 8, it says 100-240

TeaMu -

It is not "dual-voltage". It works in the range od 100V to 240V. You can use it with 176V, for example...

preziremprokletigugl -

This should also put to rest anyone who took Cerny's "mirrored GPU" comment too literally and thought there were two separate GPUs in there. Obviously it was meant to simplify doubling the compute units within one larger GPU.

tipoo - Antwort

does the ps4 pro have heating issues because it runs hotter than the original ps4

mike - Antwort

The ps4 pro heatsink is about twice the volume of the original ps4 heatsink. I've had no overheating issues even after playing for several hours.

Ben Shepherd -

Probably because it's overclcoked, drawing more power and thus more heat output.

Pls advise if PRO accepts 15mm thick HDD?

It would be great to upgrade to 4Tb.

Vadim Naliusnij - Antwort

The maximum hight of the HD/SSD inside the caddy for the PS4 Pro is 9.5mm. There is no way a juicy 15mm 5 TB HD (or similarly large SSD) is going to fit inside there.

Squishy Tia -

You can likely get a 4TB in there being its so big . They said no way with the original OG thick ps4 and I did it in 30 -40 minutes start to finish with no cutting or drilling. Just finesse and patience. And a couple loosened screws. Just dump the drive caddy...and work that b*tch in there...baby steps...

GALEN ERSO -

Does the power supply not have a grounding pin? That seems like a serious oversight.

madsglahder - Antwort

Any thoughts on replacing RAM as time goes by? I don't know much about computers anymore, and certainly not consoles.

Thanks

Lionel - Antwort

The RAM is soldered onto the motherboard. It is not user replaceable. Besides that, there are no GDDR5 modules for sale. They exist as FBGA packages only for OEM installation.

Squishy Tia -

By the way, I'm super excited about replacing the hard drive with an x400.

Does the old hard drive contain an operating system that needs to be transferred over? Or is this plug and play expandable memory?

Lionel - Antwort

You can insert a brand new, unformatted drive and it will format the drive just fine. You will need to get the *FULL* firmware (~900 MB) from Sony's system update webpage, not the smaller delta update which is ~320 MB in size. Once the new drive is installed, you put the flash drive on the rear port (unless you have an ultra thin one that can fit into the obnoxiously recessed front ports), turn the PS4 Pro on, and follow the on-screen instructions.

Installation takes ~20 minutes for a fresh HD. Shave a few minutes off for SSDs.

Squishy Tia -

You're a legend. Thanks for your support mate!

Back in 2013, a lot of PS4 owners say the PS4 is to noisy. This was with the 90mm Delta with a motor with much smaller power consumption. The fan of the PS4 Pro is not much bigger in millimetres. But it can use about the double of power. This means the fan speed can go up much higher even the noise.

Would the people send the PS4 Pro back this time for the noise? Because it makes no sense. Lower fan noise with the same fan model means lower rotation speed too. And finally it means hotter chips and a higher risk of damage.

If you see the heatsink of the Pro and compare it to the normal PS4, you will see it is not much bigger than before. So you will need more airflow to cool the APU chip this time. The TDP is rising significant.

This thoughts are made in parallel with computer hardware and the cooling of this. An actual graphics card has a bigger heatsink than the PS4 Pro on the same TDP.

TheLOD2010 - Antwort

I haven't noticed any more noise than the PS4 or the PS4 Slim. In fact, the only people I have ever heard complain about noise from fans on any PS were people that don't regularly clean/dust or vacuum. Last buddy that was complaining about noise from PS3 fan, when I opened it for him, it looked like it had hit a cat on the freeway going 60mph.

Sir I'm Vignesh from India i got ps4 pro in Japan in box it shows 100v. Can i use in india 220v or need step down transformer. please help me out.

Vignesh Asok - Antwort

Vignesh, you don't need a step down transformer as it works on dual supply voltage, just get a conversion adaptor and you are sorted.

Varun Chand -

Did you try the Japanese model with 220V? I just happened to get one too, and I'm going to return the machine if it doesn't work outside Japan.

larpo -

Regarding the fan in the ps4pro, the genius of the removable top cover is that you can go topless , (lol)and not void the warranty, and place a screen guard over the fan opening thus allow alot more cooling air to flow over the Heatsink.

more air = less noise (generally)

the ps4pro at idle in a 20c room is whisper quiet.(and is quiet using it) So if you have the ps4pro in a hot room (80f) and you noticed that it was noisy, you could make the ps4pro topless and eliminate or reduce the noise.

GREAT thing is that going ps4pro topless does not void the warranty (no stickers to break)

I would not suggest doing this on a ps4slim, due all the wires the top covers.

The top cover does not "protect anything" meaning there is not any wire that can be snagged, unlike on a topless ps4slim.

Paul Summers - Antwort

Actually, more air, more noise. That is always the case. I suspect you meant "the more free area, the less the noise". Velocity plays a bigger factor in mechanically generated noise than volume does, most of the time. Less restriction, more free area, means lower velocities, which means less noise.

You of course can also have harmonics & vibration issues , faster spinning motors usually present more sound & harmonics issues in general, however, that typically isn't an issue with these tiny motors.

Hello everyone!

I am from India and I just bought a PS4 Pro from the US that I'm bringing back home to India in the next week.

Just like its predecessors, PS4 Pro also works on dual voltage supply (the packaging only mentions 100V, reason for many to get confused) so all I would be needing is a conversion adaptor for the power plug, no step down transformer needed.

Now, my QUESTION is, the power cord supplied with it is an "I-SHENG IS-14A 10A 125V 1250W".

Can I plug this 125V power cord to my 240V wall socket in India? Will it damage my PS4 or the cable in any way?

Also, the power supply doesn't have a grounding pin, will this pose any problems for me?

Varun Chand - Antwort

Just buy a 240V rated cable. The 125V rated one, will work, and insulation will be more than sufficient. But you never know.

If the PSU does not have a ground pin, then what can you do. It will work, but if live touches some metal part of the case, that part will become live. And fuse will not activate.

Also, the power supply is not "dual voltage", because it does not only owrk with 2 different voltages. It works with wide range of voltages (for example fom 100V all the way to 240V, and everything in between). But it should say at what ranges of voltages it works.

Does the top cover of the console snaps off just buy pulling it up? no screws-hard drive nothing?

onlysoab - Antwort

Yeah dude, I just opened up the top cover last night, it's not that easy you see on clips, to pull the top cover off the body, you will need more strength. Not easy but you will finally pull it off.

no screw, nothing, just your hand.

i can reach the fan just by pulling up the above cover ? only that???

onlysoab - Antwort

Look at Step 6...

It look like if you take off that metal plate, there's room for a 12mm or 15mm hard drive, if you also don't use the caddy. Just don't use that (seemingly useless) metal plate (or better yet, just trip off the area that would cover the hard drive).

So maybe 9.5mm HDD (currently, 2TB) is the limit for those who are not modders and respect warranty. But that's not those of us on this site!

As far as I know all PS4’s worldwide are manufactured in China. China is the factory of the world now and everything is made there.

Anyone have an idea how much power from the PSU the fan draws at peak load and if it was to draw more (replacement fan for example) cause issues?

Justin O'Grady - Antwort

does the middle plastic tier cover have any screws or can just simply prying would do the trick? I would like to paint the covers, wouldn't want to disassembly the whole things other than the covers only.

I'm just trying to figure out how this and xbox one s gets an 8 when the switch gets an 8 but is so much simpler.

Matt - Antwort

They each have their own strengths and weaknesses in terms of repairability. A user-replaceable hard drive with a standard/non-proprietary form factor is a huge plus though. All three devices use some form of tamper-resistant sticker or screw to discourage you from opening them up—but once you're past that, they are all straightforward to disassemble and reassemble with zero damage. No doubt if this were a 100-point scale you'd see slightly different scores, but on a simple 10-point scale they're all roughly an 8. ;)

where can I buy ps4 pro internal fun???

tvojangel2000 - Antwort

I purchased and have been using the T9 tamper proof screwdriver for my first ps4 and it fits perfectly. I haven't taken apart a pro yet but my question is did they change the screws to T8 like the ps3s. Thanks in advance.

KcXbox Repair - Antwort

We used a T8 for the teardown. Probably worth having both in your toolkit if you like to tinker though. ;)

I’m interested in changing/improving the heatsink/radiator.

1. Add a “copper shim” between processor and heatsink with one drop MX4 on both sides.

2. Build out the heatsink/radiator with parts from a PC processor heatsink/radiator. Aliexpress and similar has a lot of radiators

Has anyone tried customizing their heatsink in this way? Or just taking off the PS4 top lid and install a PC tower heatsink on top? (would be full of dust if not covered though)

Peter Johansson - Antwort

Peter, have u swap to any heatsink? I have a wraith cooler stealth lying around, thinking if its a good idea to swap from standard.

Airil Adniruddin -

Currently investigating the benefits of placing alu things (2.5” HDD case or an intel cpu cooler heatsink) on top of the PSU heatsink which is the shiny metal plate visible after taking off the top cover.

the psu heatsink gets really hot and I think it would benefit to put a proper heatsink on top of it + fan on the back of the ps4 (where the connections are)

Peter Johansson - Antwort

How much space is there between top lid and PSU top?

I’m sure the metal shield on top is a heatsink for the PSU and I would like to add 5mm height PCB heatsinks to it. Even if it doesn’t fit I will cut a large hole in the back of the top cover, and just add a washable dustfilter. I still think an extra fan should be in the back but it could be on top too.

thoughts?

Peter Johansson - Antwort

Just teared my Ps 4 Pro like you said and i found out that the chip was burned and i have to buy a new one. Thanks for you guide again.

So it is just a standard bluray drive and not a 4k bd drive?

yes, standard blu-ray drive. PS4 Pro (and all the other PS4’s) can only read 1080p Blu Ray’s

I have a wraith cooler stealth, leftover from my pc build. Do u think if i swap the heatsink and fan from standard to this, itll be cooler? Seems like the oem heatsink is pretty big already on the pspro.

Nice vid and step by step guide. I took the top cover off like I have in the past, I removed the hdd cover and drive. I didn't want to pry on the plastic piece that sits under the piece of metal (it's the metal piece directly under the top cover and is held in place by two longer chrome colored security torx bit screws). I decided to put back together but of course I have one small black screw left over. It's not one under the warranty seals (I only removed one of those). I'd like an exploded view of where the external tamper/security screws go. I tried following the vid but it didn't show them all and was kinda fast. Do you know where all the silverish and small black security torx screws go? I don't like having leftover screws. Hind sight is 20/20 but I wish I took pics of before and after for every screw location and color. If you have a link or exploded pic I'd appreciate it. Email is kelty1983@yahoo.com Thanks.

Daniel Kelley - Antwort

Maybe you can look to the repair guides on PlayStation 4 Pro Repair to help you find every screw location.

Daniele Carminati -

Does anyone have a diagram sheet of the screws with their locations?
