  1. Hi,

    It is my very first post and i hope you guy´s can help me...
    I got myself the very Cool Mainboard from Asus, Called Striker Extreme.
    One of the accessorys was the Mini PCI Soundcard.
    It ran well for about 2 - 3 weeks but suddenly it smelled like there´s something burning.
    I quickly turned off my computer and i looked in it to find the problem.
    The soundcard was !!!very!!! hot and on top of a chip was a burned spot.

    I just wanted to know, if it´s a general problem of this MB or soundcard or if this just was a one time thing....

    The PC runs still like hell :) but without the soundcard. Thank God i still have warranty :-D

    You basically answered your own question. If it's still under warranty, take it back for a replacement.

    You could also call (or e-mail ASUS) and discuss with tech support what happened. They may have some info for you.
