    The PS4 isn't without its problems as we all know, however Sony have made the PS4 really easy to dismantle and fix. Thanks to ifixit doing a teardown on the Playstation 4 we can now see how easy it is to take apart and repair the next gen console..

    Here's what you need:

    T9 Torx Security Screwdriver Buy it
    Phillips #0 Screwdriver Buy it
    Phillips #1 Screwdriver Buy it
    Tweezers

    So lets take a look at how easy it is to take apart the PS4.

    Step 1 :

    Slide the shiny top away from the console and lift off.

    Step 2:

    Remove the Hard drive and caddy from the console. Now would be a good time to swap out that 500gb HDD for a nice solid state drive and speed up load times of installed games.

    Step 3:

    Now is where the screwdrivers come into play.

    First remove the T9 Security Torx screws which will allow access to the rest of the console.

    Step 4:

    Once all screws are removed , you can remove the power supply.

    Step 5:

    You now have access to remove the Blue Ray player. If it were me, I wouldnt even put it back again lol

    Step 6:

    To get to the all important motherboard and fan you will need to remove the top panels first.

    Step 7:

    Remove the metal heat shields and you are almost there.

    Step 8:

    Once you flip out the motherboard you will have access to the fan! iFixit endured an injury in the quest for knowledge here in the form or a cut finger, so be aware the heat shield is very sharp.

    Step 9:

    At last we have our hands on that infernal fan!

    The PS4 certainly does look a lot easier to disassemble than the PS3. A massive thanks to the guys over at ifixit for the images.
