Watercool that thing and oc the **** out of it....lol
Just make sure none of the vent holes are covered and if it gets too hot, just add a small heatsink to it, i've seen it before.

hhhhmmmmmm overclocking is tempting I wonder how you would overclock a wireless router need to increase voltage to increase the range or atleast thats what I have to do with my wireless on my laptop you can set the volts right down and be 5m away from an acess point and get no signal. use one of those zalman reserators on it
