You would think all they need to do is remap the main fan settings. Personally I don't care how loud my computer is as long as it stays cool. If you want an appliance that's different but computers are not appliances.

There's a delicate balancing when it comes to noise on consoles. Unlike most computers, consoles are front in center in living rooms, and it can become a distraction depending on the noise and placement of the console. Points to the PS4 Pro.

I wouldn't mind seeing a bump in the fan speed and new side panels with slots in them. Here's to hoping someone creates some 3D printed versions so we can see if it helps.
