The RT-AC68U for example is all solid state:

The biggest capacitor, on the bottom left, the one with an "X" scored on the top. That is most likely not a solid state capacitor.

Yeah that one is not, because it has a “vent”, however newer routers would be 100% solid like my blue cave :)

AC68U is from 2014 ...

I usually like it when the product does what it is supposed to do when you turn it on, and then upgrade it if necessary :) Next time I might try and flash Merlin just for fun :) Thanks for letting me know.
