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.

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)
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?
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)

2. Build out the heatsink with parts from a PC processor heatsink or replace it entirely with a PC heatsink and cut it to fit.
Anyone tried 2.?
There is only 4 screws and nothing under the two pads on the long left side
Use a heatgun/hairdryer for a very long time and use a cutter knife and pry continuously only from the right bottom corner (near the camera lens). If you don't get it open use the heatgun once more.
