I have a CUSL2 and it's misbehaving. Only sometimes will it allow to be powered on, and after some minutes, the ICS chip next to the dipswitches and IDE connector gets really hot, like 75c or so. The system appears to work fine when it powers on, though.
So I was wondering, can someone with a CUSL2 (or TUSL2) board try to power it up and let it warm up for a few minutes, then put your finger on that ICS chip to see if it's very hot?
Here's the location of the chip (ICS 94201DF):
EDIT: After reading the schematics for ICS 94201, it seems like it can handle temps up to 115c on the packaging, and that it can operate in ambients up to 70c. So maybe this is actually normal behavior... Would be great to confirm that this chip really gets hot in use though, and that mine is not getting hot because of a problem.
