Interesting... though if that was straight out of the box maybe needed a little time for the thermal liquid to get set? dunno much about their TIM apart from them using some unique solution. Glad I got a launch model. The PS5 is a major dust magnet, my house has timber floors which are almost vacuumed every day and it had dust bunnies in the fins. I've give it a blow out with the air compressor next weekend and see how much shakes loose!
