D-Link DIR-300 Setup

There are no complaints about cooling the processor now, but it has become pretty noisy.

Therefore, I decided to send the old man to retire and started repairs. It is repair, because replacement is laziness and squandering, at least in this situation. In place of the noisy fan, I decided to put Floston, because the noise from it is less than from the dead, but it costs a penny in comparison with its predecessor. Continue reading
