With people struggling to find consoles and stock issues set to continue for some time, those that have snapped up a shiny new PS5 will want to prolong its life as much as possible. Keeping the console cool is an essential part of this. Many PS4 owners will have experienced the loud hum of aging fans towards the end of its life cycle, and while the PS5 generation is still very new, the added power and tech under the hood make cooling the internals of the console even more important. There is a range of external cooling fans available to help the PS5 in this regard, and we've gathered the best of them in one place.

Keep your PS5 cool

As we get further into the console generation, cooling will become increasingly important as the PS5 ages. Luckily, there are already many options when it comes to increasing airflow and making sure your console doesn't get too hot.

An all-in-one option gives you some added extras such as game storage and controller charging docks, with the OIVO being the most recommendable example. If you already use your PS5 in its upright position, this stand will be a simple addition to your setup and will give you plenty of airflow underneath. The LED charging lights let you know when your controllers are ready to be used, and the built-in safety features make sure their efficiency won't be depleted.

The SIKEMAY fan is a solid choice if you're looking for a bit more performance, with a 6000 RPM rotation making light work of cooling your console. It's surprisingly quiet too, while the blue LED lights are aesthetically pleasing as well as functional.

If it's simplicity that you want, the NEXIGO option might be what you're looking for. Its lightweight and minimalist design won't take away anything visually from your PS5, and the three-fan system will provide some much-needed airflow. Its no-frills setup and operation make it a great choice if you want to avoid complex installation too. Increasing the lifespan of your PS5 is already possible, and there are some great products that help you look after your shiny new console.
