PS4 Pro Overheating issues

I started playing DBD recently on PS4 Pro and my console keeps shutting down with an error message mentioning that it is overheating, thus preventing me from playing the game.

This issue is always encountered during the screen in which the offerings are revealed before the start of a match.

After following the recommendations on this forum, I'm still encountering the same overheating issue after 1 or 2 games.

Please note that after scouting the internet a bit, I found various users posting about experiencing this issue on PS4 /Pro and Xbox One/XB1X.

    I have a PS4 pro : Play at 1080P/boost mode (for the lag/fps drops,) if the console is on it's side then you're suffocating it cuz the airflow on the ps4 needs left, right and back of console to breathe, cuz of this now I don't remember the last time it overheated.

    Test at 720p/Boost mode if you have to. Ya might need your ps4 fans cleaned.

    I tried both 720p/1080p with and without boost mode activated. So far I'm still encountering the same result.

    As for the fan cleaning, I did clean the fan but not the heatsink. However, my PS4 is less than a year old and not located in a super dusty environment so I doubt the heatsink is full of dust.

    I'll try to place my ps4 horizontally and see if it still overheats. Currently, it's on its side but with an official vertical stand which put the console slightly above my desk; thus not blocking the airflow on any side.

    In 30 years of gaming this is the only game I've ever played that shuts down with overheating, the only game in my ps4 Pro library of 300+ games that makes my ps4 Pro sound like a jet engine.

    After the last shut down its the last time I'm playing this game until it gets fixed, hopefully
