I get the feeling that these things will just cause more heat and cause problems.

I remember hearing that some of the Nyko ones for the 360 would actually melt or catch on fire.

If I've learned anything about buying extra fans for your console, it's to not buy extra fans for your console.

I'd say no

sony knows how to design consoles

mine gets warm but never hot even after extended gaming sessions

mine gets hot to the touch with super hot air out the back, not to mention it can sound like a low level hair dryer.

that said i still wouldn't buy an intercooler or whatever those extra fans have done more harm than good in the past.

maybe the ps4 one is safe but still.

I have an extra fan blowing onto my ps4.

I wish mine was as cool and quiet as everyone else says theirs is.

Mine sounds like the old xbox360's when playing games, FF IV is real bad the fan goes into overdrive.

But when watching TV like the BBC iplayer is quiet you would think it was not even on.

I used a pc case fan that blew air into my 360 I have now moved the ps4 into the 360's spot so I can turn on the fan to help with cooling.

Here a pic you can see the fan on the side of the unit : https://m.imgur.com/aflvAKb
