Hello, i have a d-link router and i'm wondering if  putting a fan directly to it and cooling it would make it run better or run issue-free, it's an ac2600 router

is it currently running warm? routers don't tend to overheat very often unless you are hitting it with more than it can handle. ie multiple clients running gigabit transfers all at the same time kind of thing. 

Current Config:

Spoiler

R5 2600X @4.1ghz all core, 16GB Patriot 3200mhz, 1TB XPG SX8200 Pro nvme, RTX 2070 Duke, CM Elite 110 mitx, pair of KRK Rokit 6 monitors with 10in sub, BenQ TH671ST projector for 150" screen. 

MSI Prestige 14 with too many cooling mods to list out (it's quiet now)

You could put a fan over it but you will be cooling the case/housing more than the actual chips, does it have any sensors you could check for temperature? Usually network hardware is actively cooler when it's requested by its capabilities (like multiple clients running 10gbps)
