Cooling solutions for R7000

Has anyone worked out a cooling solution for their R7000? My IR thermometer is putting the top of the case at 160deg F in a 77deg room. If the case is that hot.....

Mine is running 100F in a 70F room. You have a problem.

Keep in mind that there are vents on the bottom. With almost every device like this, the first thing I do is attach some extra rubber feet to the bottom. My router has a good inch of clearance underneath it now and it's not hot at all.

No measurements here, but warm to the touch, just fine. No extra cooling needed.

How do you have your router mounted? Is it on a flat surface so that air can get underneath, and circulate around it? Normal air circulation cools my router just fine.

I have it on a laptop cooling pad. Connected via USB.

I replaced the stock cooling paste in the router with a thick layer of Artic Ceramique.
This is non conductive coolingpaste the produce better results then the stock cooling paste.

I placed 4 adhesive backed rubber squares under each corner. These are at least 1/2" high and raised the unit up from the surface and seemed to improve airflow.
