I'm sure this has been asked before, Ive tried to search but cant seem to find anything. Where do you all get the heat sinks for the WRT54G routers? I just got a G-TM off of ebay and I may want to put one on to OC it a little.

Ebay...I purchase the DDR RAM heat sinks. They are just the right size for the CPU/radio/switch chips.

Hey has anyone noticed if the radio chips actually get hot? I know the CPU and the Ram chip builds some heat, but Ive never really noticed heat build up on the radio chips. Though they are shielded by the metal cases. But yeah those RAM heat sinks are cheap and work great. Couple of dollars off Ebay. May take 3 weeks to get though.lol
