    AES sound chip heating up

    is it normal for the AES sound chip (TM2610) to overheat? I've been having sound issues and I'm wondering if this is why.

    According to the Neo Geo Development Wiki, the original YM2610 did get quite warm during operation.

    thanks for the link , mine does get quite hot. I've been having sound issues on my system and I thought this may be why...but now I'm not so sure. I had the board re-capped and that didn't work either . what a pain

    What kind of sound issues? If you're really concerned about it, you may want to socket the chip and replace it.

    Try putting a simple passive heat sink on it before you get into soldering replacements - that may be all it needs
