It boots up fine but just as the windows 7 logo flashes on the screen i get this continuous beeping. I tried following the patter but somehow i found there to be an irregular pattern as it continuously beeps and not short but just long beeps,like each beep for around 4 secs. This is extremely irritating and I'm also worried if anything could be wrong. Clueless here. Please help.

So it could be a PSU problem? Checked the voltage readings and they all seem fine. Even with my overclocks my total voltage is around 380watts at the max.

My core temps on idle are 30 and on load with intel burn test are 44c. They never go above 42c while gaming.

Then try this. In the BIOS find the screen which says SATA mode and change it to IDE if it is set on ACHI and vice versa. Although it seems to be a hardware problem, but just to be sure. Keep us posted.

Damn. That looks bad. I've run my ram over night using mem test using the usb stick. Stress tested my gpu and cpu with no crashes. So if it's set to IDE i should change it to ACHI? In the bios i also have that option to hault on all errors and that is turned on.

Recently installed new internet connection through LAN and was getting bsod's. Found out that it was related to lan drivers but a driver update solved that. In the bios it was already set to IDE so i left it. Funny thing is that when i start up the computer i hear one short beep when the bios screen flashes as i always did and this beep indicates the everything is fine. But only when i go into windows do i hear these soft whistling beeps.

Check mobo for bended pins, connectors,vrm's, and check the HDD for errors.

I have one HDD that throws a few errors. It's a very old drive but i keep it for a couple of movies, that's all.

You mean a drive other than the one in your sig rig? If so, boot without that old drive connected.
