I am currently using a CSM-56F801 and I have begun noticing that the chip on the board has been getting extremely hot when I plug in the power adapter.  I have timed it and after about 2 min of having the board plugged in, the chip gets so hot that it burns my finger when I touch it.  I am worried that if this keeps up the chip may fry.  Is it normal for the chip to heat up that fast and for it to be that hot.  If not then is there anyway to fix this?
Thanks
