Cax80 question

I'm looking at buying this modem/ router as we speak..

I want to know if it has a heatsink or fan before buying...hoping it doesn't run hot!

Heatsink, definitely. Fan, I don't know. If not, you can always get a cheap USB fan and let it blow at it.

Heat sink yes, fan no. It runs warm as expected but doesn't get hot.

 

One can by a inexpensive USB laptop fan cooler and place under the unit if needed. Something I did while I had my CAX80 online. Something I do for my main host router. 24/7 cooling.
