Southbridge Cooling?

Recommended Posts

I've been getting the crackling and static in my sound, which I read that indicates an overheating southbridge chip. The wiring is quite poorly done right now, and I'm taking in in this weekend to get re-done by a professional.


Would correct wiring keep the southbridge temperature low enough not to need special cooling for it? I can touch the chip and it feels warm, but not hot enough to burn.
