There are air-vents in the front between the panels. The Blu-ray drive on the standard PS5 console has two layers of insulation which reduces the noise when discs are spinning.

PS5 Storage can also be extended easily as the teardown shows SSD expansion where you can install PCIe 4.0 based M.2 SSD drives though the 825GB on-board storage which are built-in on the motherboard.

The white panel also can be removed very easily by just lifting it from sides and sliding it off. Once the side panels are off, there is direct access to the 120 mm dual intake cooling fan which draws air from both sides. There is also something that Sony calls ‘dust catcher’ holes which as per the company can be vacuumed out and could be easy to clean the dust from the PS5.
