I have a heatsink/fan combo from an old pc that will fit inside. What is the best way to power the fan? Also what is the highest this router can be overclocked with a heatsink/fan combo?

If it is a 12V fan...connect it to the 12V barrel connector on the motherboard of the router.

If it is a 5V fan...then you will need to reduce the 12V to 5V....not sure if there is a 5V regulator on the mobo or not...you'd have to meter things out in the power circuit to find 5V.

As for OCing....I wouldn't take it above the 216MHz recommended clock rate....but that is always your choice to try...YMMV and brickage is likely.
