Hey! Recently i built up my own computer, and ive following specs:

4770k 3.5ghz (cpu)
680oc@1.2k mhz 2gb (gpu)
8g vengeance 1600 mhz (ram)
h87-pro
xfx proseries 650w (psu)
I get this low beeping sound, and i have no clue what it is. I can barely hear it aswell. It started off with a beeping sound, that continued, after i plugged in electricity into the psu. PLS HELP!

Take out and re-seat your RAM. Look at your motherboard manual and ensure it is installed properly. A lot of people over look the motherboard manual, but its the computer bible when it comes to a pc you built yourself.

Gotta be a little more descriptive, is the system powering up and running fine and it's making this beeping sound or does it make the beeping sound when you give power to the psu and you can't turn it on?

Make sure if your motherboard requires you plugged in the 4 pin 12v adapter, usually to the left of your cpu.

Hmmmm.....
Were you playing games when this happened?
Something might be getting to warm (possible) or not enough power (I doubt that with the huge supply you have).
I have heard of fans with bad bearings making strange beeping sounds though they are usually medium pitched.
Where do you think the sound is coming from?

I was going to edit my post to say that LOL.
Anything that spins in a PC can make odd sounds if its not working right.

Ive been having some issues with my hard drive, i have 2 different hard drives. 1 ssd and 1 1tb, ive winwows on the ssd, but when i enter windows, i cannot find my hard drive, however, when im in bios i can find it. Its odd, but thats not the problem i tried to take out the hard drive, and it was still beeping, when i put in the power cord. Thx for answering! Appreciated :)

I did have a problem turning it on earlier, actually, and it did beep. But i fixed it by putting in a cable properly, but the beep was still there :(

Hmmm... must have been a voltage regulator squealing because of overload.
It had to deal with all the power that was required by everthing when part should
have been supplied by another source. Makes sense, but I would keep an eye on that
HDD it may be failing or failed. Just curious what did it look like (how many pins what color
wires where it went in etc).

R=red O=orange Y=yellow G=green B=blue K=black P=purple M=pink/magenta N=nothing S=grey W=white

PCIE...................ATX 4........MAIN ATX........................................MOLEX
(Y)(N)(Y).............(O)(Y).......(O)(B)(K)(G)(K)(K)(K)(W)(R)(R)........(R)(K)(K)(Y)
(K)(K)(K).............(K)(R).......(O)(O)(K)(R)(K)(R)(K)(S)(P)(Y)

SATA
Flat Black connector.

I suspect it was the 4 pin extra ATX power, right?
