Various reports from hardware experts have claimed that the PS5 has a major flaw in its APU cooling, especially with the liquid metal used in the process, and this could damage your console.

Apparently, the liquid metal found on the PS5 can actually move on some consoles. This liquid metal shouldn’t be able to move at all, and if you lay your console horizontally, it shouldn’t. However, when placed vertically, gravity can cause the liquid metal to shift, which can cause overheating, poorer performance, and possibly even permanent damage.

Here is a video from TheCod3r Let’s go into this topic in depth:

Since the APU and liquid metal are present in both the physical and digital editions of the PS5, this is something that could affect all PS5 consoles. However, it’s worth noting that the problem isn’t that common, and most PS5 owners don’t really have any issues with their consoles. The risk is also only high among PS5s that stand upright for long periods of time, so if you only set your PS5 upright for a few days or a week, it’s unlikely that your console was damaged in this way.

Still, even if the odds are slim, you’d better free up some extra space to set up the PS5 horizontally just in case.
