Linksys E3000 mod, need advice!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN!


I'm about to receive a Linksys E3000, and I've read around that it has some trouble dissipating heat. I'm going to mount a 120mm fan on the bottom of the device, with its airflow flowing up to the bottom of the device. I'm also going to mount 4 legs to the device, to give it some more breathing room, and to allow the fan to push more air from underneath.

I'm having trouble finding the parts I'm looking for, so I'm turning here for some advice!

I'd like the legs to be permanent, so adhesive will work fine. Four adhesive legs running 2 inches in height would be preferred.

For the fan mounting, I'd like 0.5 inches of clearance from the fan and the bottom of the device. Whatever is used to mount them I'd like to be adhesive as well (or Velcro, whatever works without drilling holes).

So, I'd like this all to be do-able without any hardware modification (AKA no drilling screws in). Links to parts close to what I describe, or proper terminology for the parts I'm describing will be repped accordingly!




Thanks for helping a n00b!

EDIT: I say rubber because of vibration. It doesn't necessarily have to be a vibration-dampening material. I could always put rubber padding on the bottom of the legs to fix any vibration related issues!

I have the EA3500, and they only get hot just a bit, I think just changing it's stand will be more than enough, look for adhesive rubber legs or something similar and stick it to the bottom where the current legs are.
