    I read its best to put soundcard into pci slot 3. So I put it there and its right beside my NV silencer. However, now my vid card ambient tmep has risen 10 degrees and the GPU is getting much hotter too.

    Should I move the soundcard to pci slot 5 and try again or is it a power issue to the fan?
