    Weird beeping sounds when running PRIME 95.

    I replaced my dead motherboard, my old Asus Sli deluxe had damage so i bought a new one, put a zalman heatsink on it and off I went.

    Everything booted up fine, I changed my usual settings in the BIOS (I.E. No silly logo at startup).

    But, to test I used PRIME 95 and to my confusion I get random beeps. This are fast paced beeps and dont seem to be coming from the motherboard (as I took the speaker cable out of the motherboard header and the noise was still there. The noise is best described as a quietesh very fast paced beeps. It seems as though it is coming from the top end of my computer. Although I cannot be sure.

    Here is my specs-

    - AMD 3800+ Venice

    - ASUS A8N SLI DELUXE

    - ZALMAN 9500 and ZALMAN NB HEATSINK

    - 7800GTX 256mb

    - 250GB SATA HD

    P.S. Things I have tried already-

    Its getting weird now.

    Changed PSU- Noise still there

    Tigtened CPU COOLER- Still there

    Disconnected SPEAKER HEADER from MB - Still there

    Reconnected NB COOLER (ZALMAN PASSIVE) - Still there (although i can fiddle with it abit, but maximum load VIA ASUS UTILITY is 37C. But when I touch it it burns me .

    Disconnected DVD drives- Still there

    Reseated Motherboard- Still there

    Listened to hardrive- Not from there

    GPU- Not there

    Turned off EXHAUST fan and CPU fan- Still there

    Changed PSu and even ran psu outside the comp- Still there


    Im currently running prime to check if the computer is stable at all. Unusally the computer is quite hot after a 5-10min gaming session.(Probably just me)

    Thanks for any help and sorry for the vauge post.

    EDIT- Its a very faint beeps, its a very very faced paced beeps too.

    What kind of psu do you have? My hiper makes quiet high pitched beeps when under heavy load. Doesn't seem to affect anything but its a little annoying.

    Could you record the sound and put a file up?

    He mentioned it's still there when he changed PSU...

    Very strange. Any other fans on your mobo (chipset)?

    You say defo not GPU... have you tried another card in?

    I agree, it's probably a heat warning. Maybe the HSF isn't properly seated on the CPU.

    The temps are fine according to ASUS PROBE. Also, the fact that they come up the SECOND i start PRIME is fishy. I watch my temps go from 30C to 40C and its still there. But as soon as I stop prime and im at FOR EXAMPLE 39C it will go away.

    I think it maybe a bent resistor-



    Does anyone know anything about them? It would help loads .

    I've not found that bent resistors are a problem per se - I just "rescued" an old mobo to put in a PC that had loads of the beggars bent - I was worried, but it worked fine. If they get bent too far, however, one of the legs can snap.
