Try Tech Support Greatest Hits, there are lots of issues with SB cards.

If you want to check temps and stuff try Motherboard Monitor

i dont think it is over heating, and i dont think the real problem is the sound card, i think the noise is just a side affect of the computer freezing.

What OS and what version of DX are you using? Might seem unrelated but humour me.
Of course the problem probably is your soundcard. If you have it seated properly you might wanna start shopping for a new one.

*Agrees with Rant*

When driving a Classic Mopar, be sure to run over as many Geo/Chevrolet Metros as possible.

I have windows 98SE and DX 8.0 If it really starts to bother me i will just take it out and use the one on motherboard. It doesn't freze that often, but when it does it will do it several times.
