It has been an absolute nightmare doing this thoroughly, but we're finally confident in the differences between PS5 cooling design. Working on processing the data. We did true like-for-like testing by transplanting the cooler to the same PCB and tcouple wiring. Lots more too.
The main piece will be a collaboration with @digitalfoundry, with follow-ups planned as we found many more differences worth testing.
We'll talk about this in the video, but we did fully stock tests (unopened beyond thermocouple wiring) in various configurations, then we started transplanting -- so we have enough data to have all angles and to know how to do it right.
One other thing: Despite being an actual pain in the neck to screw and unscrew like 200 screws 4 times, this whole endeavor has really allowed us to improve our thermal testing processes, thermal data management, our thermocouple wiring process, etc. Great learning experience
Mentioning this because our YT community page has the usual idiocy of "wAsTe Of TiMe JuSt PlUg It iN"

We're not covering the Amazon video card thing because I'm trying to not live in my office 24/7 for once and have been planning to go biking for a few days. I'm now seeing dumbass reddit comments where they accuse us of "covering" for EVGA. I'd really appreciate it if you guys2/4
wouldn't freak out if we don't talk about something for 24 hours because (1) it's still developing, and (2) maybe I want a break and can't be expected to always rearrange my life for PC hardware. I've sacrificed a lot over the last 14 years to stay on top of PC hardware, and
it's extremely frustrating to see people flip to "you're biased! You're covering!" just because some redditor got upvoted like crazy for rubbing two brain cells together long enough to make that conclusion, instead of maybe "Steve can't reasonably cover everything all the time"
