    Anybody got one of those Red Dead bundle Pro's? The reason I ask is because my current one is so loud it gets on my nerves. Do the new revisions also sound like jet engines?

    I'm not playing at 4k, maybe that's making a difference

    It makes some difference but still loud. I ended up playing at 1080p because I could stand the noise :)

    DF say the new Pros are quieter but run a bit hotter.

    Where's the best place to get Playstation Plus from these days? Used to use G2A but it seems a little on the pricey side now for 12 months.

    it's the poor application of thermal paste and crappy pads.

    open it up, clean it thoroughly. get some half decent paste and use a thin layer.

    place better pads on all memory chips.

    this is pretty much guaranteed to halve noise levels

    Cheers, I just watched that video.

    That's good to hear.

    That's definitely an option although I might just buy one of the new revisions when there's a deal and sell my current one.

    Not necessarily. I'll sell my current one for maybe £240-£250 and grab a new Pro when I see a deal. So I'll have a new one with a warranty for £50-£70.

    I'd love to get an Xbox One X but the PlayStation exclusives are what I'm sticking around for!

    The new PS4 pros are much quieter. Look for the 7216 model which is bundled with red dead 2.

    Took the plunge and decided to join the PS VR crew. Ordered myself Tetris Effect too as all the gaming podcasts I listen to are banging on about how good that and Astro Bot is. Lets see what all the fuss is about come the weekend.
