First off I'll post my PC specs:

CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.40GHz
PSU: Cooler Master Silent Pro M2 520w
GPU: Asus Geforce GTX 650 Ti Boost 2GB
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P31-DS3L
RAM: Crucial 2x2GB DDR2
HDD: Samsung HD403LJ 400GB

It all started when my old graphics card (GT 8600) died. I bought the 650 and after installing it started to send loud beeps, but only when playing games or using lot of computer resources. First I thought it's the PSU's problem because my old power supply was only 230w (on the GTX's box it says it requires 450w). So I bought a SPM2 bronze certified. But now the problem is still there and when I tried to play a game (Planetside2) I got terrible frame rate issue. I opened my PC box to check if the GPU was hot (It was normal) but the HDD was really hot. That's all I was able to find out about this problem. If you need some more information I'll try to gather it.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

P. S. This might be a weird request but if you could, please provide as much information about the problem and why it happened, I might need it in the near future when I build a new PC. Thanks again. :D

Check in your BIOS to see if you have a CPU warning set for a certain temperature. My computer beeps on really hot days while gaming because I have a warning beep set to go off at 70C or higher. If you didn't set a warning there may be one by default.

I checked the BIOS for GPU temperature but could only find CPU temperature settings. Is this what I was looking for?

Edit: Nevermind... I thought I was looking for GPU settings :\

Use MSI afterburner to check GPU temps and core temp or speedfan to check CPU temps.

OK thanks guys. I worked it out. It indeed was the temperature warning. I set it to 80 C in the BIOS. Everything looks great, even the frame rate problem is gone. Thanks again for everyone who helped me out. :D

That is more of a work around more then anything. I suggest you try to get the temperature down.

Is the heatsink mounted correctly and free of dust?
