Default Soundcards, do they produce much heat??

As title, ive owned about 3-4 pc's in my life time, all havent had a soundcard(and i didnt bother buying one) but i decided to get one the other day so ive got that and installed it, obviously its right by my GPU (underneath) , so i just wondered do soundcards produce much heat? i know it wouldnt be as hot as a GPU though.

P.s the card i have is a Creative X-Fi Extreme audio

Sound cards are not known for being hot or producing much heat.

the X-Fi is the only sound card I know that even has a heatsink on it. and the heatsink it does have is just weak.

Video cards are really the only PCI cards that need a fan on them, because they have to do so much. USB and Sound cards just don't really need to do that much. Just play sounds and connect devices.
