Basically I have been having problems with my modem overheating constantly to the point of the internet being unusable. To fix this problem I decided to install a fan to cool it off.
-12v CPU fan or any fan that will fit in your modem
Step 1: Disassembly
Then pop the circuit board out of the top housing.
To make the fan fit I removed the top cover(gray piece in the third picture) it was just held in with snaptabs.
Step 2: Soldering
Step 3: Reassemble
I plugged it in and it has been running great ever since.
Add a POT cause the fan running at full blast can be kinda loud at night(its right next to my bed)
Search out a specific fan the can be mounted inside the case
The final pic is of it running.
