Well, from a technical standpoint, the heat generating components of the modem are separated from the housing by around 1-1.5cm of air space, so your cooling solution does not help much. (it still does something though) What would be more effective is to cut a hole to fit an 80 mm usb fan (in a shroud, not the ones on the gooseneck things, and screw it in to the hole. just that little bit of air movement (if done correctly, it will be virtually silent) will make the world of difference. Trust me, I have done it to 4 overheating routers and modems, and they have never gotten hot again.
thanks for the suggestion,but i dont think im gonna make a hole on my modem ;D
