Nothing, Listen! It's a speaker!
But really it just depends on how it beeps at you once you try it out and what problem the beeps translate into.

No clue how to use memok, read the manual/search for some posts about it, or wait for someone else to chime in who's actually used a mobo with it and needed to use it.

installing DIMMs that are incompatible with the motherboard may cause system boot failure, and the dram_led near the memok! switch lights continuously. press and hold the memok switch until the dram_led starts blinking to begin automatic memory compatibility tuning for successful boot.

when i power the machine the dram_led doesn't light so i guess i don't have that problem.

Has anyone recommended clearing the CMOS, and then trying the onboard?
If not, then try it. To clear the CMOS, take out the watch battery on the motherboard for like 30 seconds while it's off. Put it back in, then try booting with onboard.

No beeps at all? Try it with no ram. If it still doesn't beep (assuming the pc speaker works!) AND clearing the cmos changes nothing, I'd assume it's a bad mobo.

It was a new mobo? So the cmos should be ok, but clearing it with the pci-e gpu pulled out isn't a bad idea.

IRRC most motherboard default to a PCI/PCI-E GPU on first boot. So when he tries to use the onboard, it's still trying to boot from the other GPU. So clearing the CMOS would default to the onboard.
That could rule out a faulty GPU.

That statement is contradictory! None the less, clearing the cmos can't hurt. If it's a new board though, it would already be on defaults.

Yeah, but I'm pretty sure it still defaults to the dedicated GPU if it's installed, faulty or not.
