Strange Beep

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Im getting slightly worried, basically my PC has been on since last night folding, however i only have the SMP client running for the past say 14hours. Which means the quad has been running at 100% on all cores since. Now im getting an intermittent beep, i think about once every 5mins but ive only heard it 3 times so cant be sure.

I havent heard this before, any reason for this, my temps are showing 40C in speedfan and 62 in coretem.

Thanks for any input

Do you have a g0 or a b3 q66? the b3's thermal limit is 62~63C, so it may be hitting that max and you motherboard is telling you such.

Go into CPU-z and it should be right next to the voltage.

Will be either B3 or G0.

Last august means it is probably a B3. What do you have the cpu overclocked to? How many volts are you putting in? It really sounds to me like you are reaching your thermal limit. You may want to back off your overclock a little bit.

im out with laptop atm ill check cpu-z when possible, its not oc'd much atm, only 200mhz and the beep only happened 4 times and stopped, if it is B3 stepping wats the thermal limit?

One other question, why would speedfan and coretemp be giving me two completely diff temps like that
