    There is also 3466mhz cl16 kits for less aswell.
    If you are into RGB, hat kit right there isnt half bad.
    Tho this is also a choice.

    Same... when I ran my R7000 as a primary router, I used a laptop cooler as well (though plugged into the wall). I now use mine as an AP for my PFsense router and there is almost no detectable heat.

    Huh, weird, my R7000 works fine. Granted, I never run factory firmware on it - I have Advanced Tomato and it works well. It is aging though, and eventually will need to be replaced with something else in the near future. Seriously considering going with something from Ubiquiti Networks instead.

    If you have any way to actively cool the router that might help. DDWRT made my router run hot as hell. I used a laptop cooler I had laying around and plugged it in to the routers USB port. Found it ran much cooler. The lack of support is why I choose to buy a new router. Because I was not sure when DDWRT was going to update the firmware due to the security issues found in WPA 2 last year or so.

    DarkAcid1212 got a reaction from kirashi in Rant about my router   
    Thank you! I don't know why my response hasn't been posted but I am currently using DDWRT. This actually comes with its own problems too. Slow support aside, my wifi drop randomly if there is 7 or more devices are connected. It also requires to restart every so often in a matter of days. I haven't tried advanced tomato. I will check this out and thank you again for your recommendation on Synology RT2600AC.

    Here you can suggest review topics:
    LTT in the past has covered this device, Taran did some more videos on his personal channel about them.
    They look super cooll, but also somewhat expensive.
    This is the videos I am talking about:

    This is what you are looking for. Good performance for a good price.
    The CPU and motherboard can overclock and you get a good cooler to do so.

    DarkAcid1212 reacted to Vasllo in CPU + mobo upgrade suggestions   
    Do you plan on overclocking? If not, just get an 8700 with a B360, if you do, get an 8700k with a Z370, you won't get any extra performance for spending more on a Z390 nor in a 9700k. And if you don't plan on playing in a high refresh rate monitor, Ryzen is also a great option, it's only downfall is for 144Hz+ gaming, other than that, pretty great at everything, specially cost.
