I have the normal launch PS4. And You just need a phillips head and a T8 Torx screwdriver. Just remove the top 3 back Torx and the bottom Torx, slide off the hard drive and remove every screw you see. 

And just keep removing stuff until you get to the motherboard and flip it around to find the SoC, and you'll see 'probably' some dried out thermal paste that's barely even there anymore, and re-apply and do everything in reverse.

alot of people bring up the thermal paste but the majority of cases it's the heat sink that's the problem. Make sure you check the heat sink for dust build up. Because i had replaced my thermal paste and issue wasn;t resolved till i vacuumed it all out. Mine went from sounding like a plane taking off, to a sleeping baby. 

I cleaned all the dust and changed the thermal paste. Dust was the biggest issue but might as well change the paste whilst you've got it disassembled.
