Gamer builds bonkers modded PS5 with white body plates and water cooling system for 'ultimate performance'
A TECH whizz has built a bonkers modified PlayStation 5 with a water cooling system typically sported by high-end gaming PCs.
The Vietnamese customiser also added sleek white body plates to his console, which he hopes to sell commercially in future.
A video showcasing the impressive build was uploaded to YouTube last month.
PC modder Nhenhophach says that he replaced almost the entire PlayStation bodywork with new plates and parts.
He reckons that the water cooling system – designed to stop the console from overheating – ensures it always runs at peak performance.
The PS5 comes with a high-end air cooling system built in, but these are louder and bulkier than water-based ones.
Nhenhophach says he built the console in about two months.
He hopes to sell a range of water-cooled modded PS5s to gamers in future.
“This is just the very first version of water cooled PS5, there will be so many more versions,” Nhenhophach said in the video.
“We are continuing [to] prepare for [a] commercial version and also ready to integrate the water cooled PS5 into one of our next PC build, don’t miss it.”
Sony launched two versions of the PlayStation 5 in the US on November 12, and in the UK on November 19.
The full PS5 costs £449/$499, while a Digital Edition without a disc tray is priced at £359/$399.
They're up against Microsoft's Xbox Series X (£449) and Xbox Series S (£249), which hit shelves worldwide on November 10.
The PS5 launched with major exclusive games like Spider-Man Miles Morales and a revamped version of Dark Souls for players to enjoy.
Xbox gamers, on the other hand, have a new Halo title to look forward to later this year.
All four consoles have been sold out around the world, with stock seesawing in and out of availability over the past few weeks.
PlayStation boss Jim Ryan recently offered hope to gamers who wanted a console.
Speaking to the Financial Times, Ryan admitted that stock levels would climb steadily month-on-month.
He added that from July onwards, it will be much easier to get a PS5.
"It will get better every month throughout 2021," Ryan explained.
"The pace of the improvement in the supply chain will gather through the course of the year.
"So by the time we get to the second half of , you're going to be seeing really decent numbers indeed."
In other news, The Sun's favourite alternative to a games console is the Oculus Quest 2 VR headset.
Grab a VR headset and you'll be able to play the legendary Beat Saber – like Guitar Hero, but with lightsabers.
And Dell's Alienware R10 Ryzen Edition is a gaming PC powerhouse that crushes both the new consoles.
