Definately seems to be so. Must be either something to do with the size of the 
cache, the speed in MHz or the heat generated as I can concur it's only 
random, can not appear for hours, and can naturally last anything between 2 
seconds to 2 minutes.

With the network client I've cobbled together, the effect is countered.

Still I use my Indy or Octane now for playing music.
