Default Heat/Summer is Coming

Hello gents, anyone come up with a good way to cool this bad boy? I keep mine flat and it gets hot. Anyone know for sure if it runs cooler with the little stand that comes with it--so is almost vertical (and not flat)?

The alternative is to put it on a notebook cooler. Will it be any problem with interference as most of these coolers are metal on top?

Thanks, and my complements to the other members, this is a great forum.

Aristotle

I wouldn't worry about it. Mine was reaching 65C during the summer here, and I have no AC to cool down my apartment. As long the temperature doesn't go above 70C, it shouldn't be a problem.

And, BTW, new routers got an overheating protection.

How about sitting it on a laptop cooler?
