Hi Team






I have a bit of a odd situation my new ASUS router seems to have a slight rattle to it.


I had it on top of my PC and whenever the fans ramped up I would get a small rattle which I thought was one of the fans I was getting slightly annoyed by it so I listened to try see which fan it was then I noticed it was actually the router on top of the PC. I have since moved the router onto my desk so it's not really an issue but I was wanding if anyone else here has the new RT-AC86U and can confirm if there's has a slight rattle to it when holding it?

Haven't heard one rattle normally, But I am aware there's a Heatsink held on by Thermal tape that is prone to coming unstuck. (similar fault to some Netcomm routers)
