Quoted from Nighthawk128:
Just a FYI, after 1 year of resets in Getaway, from the Pinwiki guide on reset and I have to admit I targeted header pins first, etc. What I failed to look at until I went through the Pinwiki list a few times to see if I missed something. Turns out I did and no-one really talks about this. The plug... the friggin plug!
Standard 6' PC cable, the old one was brass but had to scrape the black off to see the brass. Just look at your prongs that should and would be step #1 in troubleshooting then work up the cable from there down the list.
This board is cool but in reality my resets DID indeed indicate there was a bottleneck in power supply.
Edit: It's been a week, no resets, bridges and the 5V regulator seem to run cooler, I can actually touch them for a few seconds comfortably instead of a microsecond.
CoinOp Cauldron now recommends that you replace the ICD connectors at J101, J115, J120, and J121 with Molex-style Trifurcon connectors to prevent this type of thing. The heat in those areas not only takes out the headers but it also tarnishes the connectors and reduces their efficiency. So CoinOp replaces the headers with ones that have a higher heat tolerance and recommends doing the same for the connectors to prevent the oxidation your talking about.
