I've recently built this system, my first build. (see specs below)
The problem is I've been getting beeps/buzz from the onboard speaker.
They are about 1 sec. in length and seem random. Sometimes they are back to back.
Also, the PC will shut off completly with out any warning.
After doing some poking around I was able to monitor the temps. volts. & fan speeds in BIOS & in windows w/Smart guardian.
I found out that the CPU, Chipset, System temps & volts will repeatedly and randomly spike into the red.
For instance the CPU temp may go from 67*F to 498*F for a half a sec. or the DRAM may go from 1.77v to 2.56v. There seems to be no coralation or pattern between the temps and volts nor with the beeping.
BIOS are set to 'Optomize'
No over clocking.
Nothing more than Windows, the net and a printer are running.
Side panels are off.
Room temp is about 71*
