    The last time i had the case open, today, I noticed that the sb live's chip was quite hot. I wonder if this has anything to do with the sound cutting out after playing red faction for more than 1/2 hour. This never happened with the c-media 5.1 that was in there before the sb live.

    There have been ppl who have stuck heatsinks to their's though I think that this is more of a case airflow or production prob as my 2 on older o/c'd systems have never shown this prob with them.
