In Asus Probe, what are your temp thresholds set at for your cpu and motherboard?
Change your motherboard threshold to 55c and you should not get that warning at all (Could have been the cause of your beeps as well). These Asus boards run on the warm side so setting it to 55c (still safe) will help even when working with a full load.
I have a very similar setup and my threshold setting in Probe are:
Cpu = 50c
Mobo = 55c
The temp probe for the mobo (southbridge) is very close to the graphics cards which causes even warmer temps. I even setup a 120mm fan inside my case (blowing toward the gpu's and southbridge) and brought down temps really nice, even lowered my cpu temp alittle and helps bigtime in cooling the graphics cards as well.
Before adding fan:
Cpu idle = 34c
Mobo idle = 42c
120mm fan added:
Cpu idle = 32c
Mobo idle = 34c (8c difference in mobo idle temp with fan added.)
Obviously helps with load temps as well
