I had a pair of well used but fully functional F3B's a couple of years ago but didn't really know what to do with them. I already have two full 5.1 setups and there's just no place for a dedicated...

I would go with a good, used hdmi 1.3 avr. But maybe not H/K as their reliability is a bit iffy. Maybe a circa 2009-2011 Yamaha, Denon or Pioneer, like the vsx-01 or 03. I'm still using an Elite...

Older Onkyo's, like your 607, did run very warm. I had an Integra 8.9 a few years ago that got so hot I had to unplug it even in standby mode. A 70.2* I bought a while later ran much cooler.
