System Beeps

Hi Everyone,

I have a new build I have been working on (parts installed listed below). I have nothing else installed however when I power the system on just to get into BIOS I hear a continuous short beep and nothing happens. From reading the manual that came with the motherboard it indicates a power issue. Is this because I have no memory installed? It is the where I plugged my fans in? The fan in the back of the case is installed on the SYS FAN 1 port, the CPU fan is installed in the CPU FAN port, and the front case fan installed in the SYS FAN 2 port on the motherboard. I also made sure all the connects are secure.

Anything else I should be looking for?

Case: COOLER MASTER Storm Enforcer

Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Power Supply: CORSAIR Professional Series HX750

hey fredblogges,

I ended up resolving the issue recently. What I did to stop the noise was to go into my BIOS and turn off C3/C6 State Support. You may want to check that in your BIOS. Below is a link to my MB manual.

Also, here is another thread I had going while I was having this noise issue.

Hope this helps, I could not deal with the high pitch noise. I think the noise is generated because of the C3/C6 power state settings and how the voltage is being changed. Being that my i5 already can OC'd I wonder if it was trying to draw more power then it was getting?
