    This is stock beta firmware with L2TP fixes only. Oleg tries to help ASUS.

    Not a very clean job, but now it's ready for overclocking...

    Your router will get a cold dude

    Cool

    A little update on he cooling side... Since on the first try, the 40mm fan mounted on the cpu heatsink was a little bit noisy at night (the router is placed in a bedroom) because the fan was very close to the top cover of the case, I decided to cut a hole in it, changed the fan to a bigger one (50mm) and also reduced the rpm by using two 10 Ohm 3W resistors. In addition, I've covered all the top and side air holes, so now there is a good air flow on both top and bottom sides of the board.

    In that case i would prefer using the router without the top, intead creating holes on it. It would be more fresh, less noise / consumption / time ...

    Thatґs what we call in my country "xuning" , thanks anyway for sharing.


    PS: Warranty void, even with a new top i doubt they RMA the unit. And... you forgot to add another heatsink to the right side of the black one, LOL

    The warranty is bulshit anyway... And if something goes wrong, even if you haven't opened the case, and it's brand new, and you have flashed a 3rd party firmware, it might be impossible to flash the original firmware into a dead router before you RMA the unit...

    I don't worry about warranty, and onestly, having seen what temperatures do the chips reach in the standard configuration, compared to what I have now, I seriously think that my unit is far more reliable than a brand new one...

    I've read the temperatures you measured, but on my unit, before modding, when transferring data between WLAN, LAN and USB attached storage, temperatures were far higher, as confirmed by other owners on different forums...

    It's a little different a router with a 3rd party installed and router with wires, holes and others "stuff" don't you think? My old WL500GP was changed with a 3rd party fw for a new one, i don't think they will check or consider that. But i'm sure such "tweeking" like yours would be a refused RMA...

    Temperatures, well that depends on the temperature outside the router too, im sure in the summer (30-35є outside | 24-27є inside) would be different, i measured in the winter (2-10є outside | 18-22є inside)... But anyway it depends on the headsink you have installed, have you checked my heatsink compared to yours? It's almost the triple

    PS: Show me your measures / other forums. I going to measure again tomorrow but with conditioner air at maximum of 32є (inside) and we will see...

    Mate, I was talking about an original unit, without heatsink on ethernet or RAM... And again, I don't see the point in repeating the fact that I lost the warranty... I KNEW that before I started modding the unit... And, in the end, it's not the warranty for a 30.000 euros car, it's just a 100 $ router...

    In that case, good holes But it was not a critic, my WL500GP was worst than yours (wires,memory mod,jtag,serial,4xusb mod) and i was not worried with warranty too, but what i ment was that maybe a little unnecessary to make the hole / cooler, you could take the top instead, my opinion of course... I tell you this because i hate coolers (noise, dust, consumption), i've got a EPI I7-640UM (Dual 1.20GHZ) and a C2D-P9500 (Dual 2.5GHZ) "routers" without coolers (full passive cooling) machines that copy 125mb/s in the network, so i don't think RT-N16 needs one...
