    I live in the NT, man. Up here it's either cool weather (you southerners will reckon it's warm or hot), or it's super humid and super hot.

    The PS4 slim's changes sound like a bad idea if you live in a humid, tropical place like NT.

    The cooling looks like it would be alright, if there was more air gaps. As it stands, the heatspreader for the VRAM has nowhere to spread that heat to because it's right up against plastic and the PSU is crammed in hard.

    Then again, i've seen no need for a 'slim' version of the PS4 at all. New process so it uses less power and costs less, sure, but the trick to quiet and function cooling is to make the fan(s) big, not small.

    Dunno man, only real hope is that little blower fan being able to go full turbine if it needs to, otherwise i wouldn't really trust it in aus summers.

    Or move to a first world country with air conditioning. Problem solved.

    People in australia don't bother to turn the air-con on until it's above 35c, and we're pussies compared to saudi arabia and singapore and shit.
