Question Heated soundcard?

I just got done putting a 12v fan on my northbridge heatsink and a heatsink on the southbridge. but while i was lookin at it it brought a qustion to mind. do sound cards get real hot? specificaly Soundblaster cards. If so then i might mount a heatsink on the thing too lol.

Why not put a fan on your keyboard? It could get hot.
