    Hmm.... Open your case and see if you can tell where it is coming from.

    Upload a recording of it if you can. All is well otherwise? No red warning box when you enter MIT in the BIOS?

    No red warning box in bios, my overclock is just fine. It sounds like a clock tic, its 3 quick tic tic tic, then board turns off, sounds like the board itself is where its coming from. Dont motherboards make beeps, this i know, but this is not a beep, its a tic tic tic. I will try to record if im able to do that, very strange, but everything is working fine.

    Ahh, yeah boards do beep and I will tell you what. If you do not have a case speaker connected it may be trying to beep and you hear that instead!

    ahhhhhhhhhh i looked at that first link i think i do have one around, i think my board came with it, but i had no idea what it was. So can i asume that those 3 clicks are really 3 beeps ?. I will try to find my speaker, if not i will order one, where do i find out what the different amout of beeps mean ?. You never cease to amaze me with your knowlege

    Well it could be ticks trying to beep, but normally beeps would be at startup. In the back of your manual there is beep codes.

    Sounds like it could be actually something else. You may need to get your system our of your case and start trying things with the minimal connected until you find it. Plus with it being out of the case you should be able to better tell what it making the sound
