Step 4 Power Supply. Place the Playstation 4 Slim right side up, with the PS logo on top and the side with the words "SONY" and "PS4" facing you. Pry up on the two corners that are facing you with your fingers. This may take a bit of force to open and you will hear a fairly loud click when the top cover detaches.
Step 31. Lift the motherboard out from the PS4. Apply a new layer of thermal paste to the processor before installing a motherboard using this guide. Failure to properly install new thermal paste will cause your PS4 to overheat. Insert the I/O side of the Motherboard in first, then lower the other side in. Edit.
