Last week, the ghost of liquid metal in the PlayStation 5 CPU struck again through an article that pointed to new case reports of consoles affected by this consequence of an alleged design flaw. However, the passage of time has led to 2 things, the uncertainty about whether or not there is a risk and to clarify some related misunderstandings.

They deny that the liquid metal of PS5 has affected new consoles
The Wololol.net site updated its article related to the liquid metal of the PS5, specifically the part in which it refers to the hardware repair expert TheCod3r who referred to the problem in “unopened” consoles. At that time, it was thought that the youtuber was referring to consoles that had not come out of their box, but now the site points out that he was actually referring to consoles that have not been opened by their users or other repairmen, that is, units in I use that haven’t been subjected to the screwdriver treatment to see what the hell is inside.
The problem is still real AFAIK, but there is *no evidence* that it happens on consoles that have been sitting in their box. That part was a complete misunderstanding on our end.
The damage is done, but I have updated the article (pending cache refresh)https://t.co/jx0ngLqR41

Clarified that point, it is assured that the problem of liquid metal in the PS5 is real, but the truth is that we continue with isolated cases magnified by the Internet and social networks that could well enter a percentage of defective hardware expected by Sony (and any company that manufactures and sells hardware or electronic devices) and even by users.
Likewise, the question of the context of these consoles and the treatment they received by the user or if they were victims of some situation such as an electric shock continues to assail. The reality is that beyond the scandal that is made in videos and publications, there is no strong evidence to confirm that Sony has a big problem with PS5 due to a design flaw in the console’s processor cooling system.
