    Internal speaker beeping cuz of o/c?

    Ok i have an Abit BF6 m/b and cel2 566@905 , 106fsb...stable...v1.85...with alpha pep66 so relatively cool...thing i have noticed...which i associate with my overclocking i guess...is when i play games such as counterstrike and quake 3....my internal speakre starts to beep once in a while which sounds similar to my hardware docter warning beeps...hardware docter is not running....but everything seems fine in it...is there anyway to disable beeps prolly in bios ? anyone eles had this with a bf6?

    Look in your mobo manual- it might be a warning beep for undervoltage or something like that. I had a heck of a surprise one day when I heard what sounded like a loud police siren! It took a few minutes to realize it was coming from my case (It started simultanously with me clicking a web link, and I couldn't figure out why the web page had such an annoying wav all the sudden). Turns out one of my fans had failed, it was a hot day, and the CPU temp of 56.5C had tripped the 56C warning siren. Rather than replacing the fan, I fixed this by changing the warning to 60, hehe.

    FYI, it was an SY-6BA mobo. (original, not + or anything) boy did I luck out with that unknown board- what a winner of a mobo!

    Many motherboards have health indicators to check various voltage levels and spikes as well as temperature at various locations (motherboard, cpu, etc.) Some have different beeps for different problems. The best way to change the settings for those sorts of things is through the BIOS. A lot of times the software doesn't work right. That or you could disconnect the PC speaker. Nobody uses those things anymore...

    Yeah, those stupid alarms! Every time my overheat alarm came on, I had to unplug the damned speaker to stop it! (The only other solution was a powerdown, and who wants to interrupt a great game of quake3 WFA for a measly meltdown?) It wasn't a smart alarm- even if the heat went down, it wouldn't shut off [SY-6BA]
