So hey everyone , just having a problem here , running a Foxxcon H61MXV mobo with a CM V8 cooler which i replaced the stock fan with a Xigmatek , going all nice and smoothly , got it on smart-fan setting , scaling the RPM with the heat of the CPU , but when the RPM drops under 1000 the mobo makes a beeping noise like a bloody fire alarm!

There should be a setting in the BIOS where you can turn that off.

The PC is worried about your CPU melting, but if you are quite sure it won't then you can change it.

I don't remember off the top of my head the name of it on that specific board, but there should be something about idle RPMs in there.

50c at load is fine for any processor out there.

At max usage mine goes north of 60c.

It's on the Health tab: CPU Smart Fan Control or CPU Warning Temperature. Manual doesn't list the option there, but if it's unclear come back and ask.

Yeah mate , the thing is , i have found both the cpu temp option and the smart fan , what i need is , to set the mobo so it wont alert me with a god awfull beeping noise when the RPM drops under 1000

You could take out the internal speaker, if you are sure there are no potential catastrophic operational problems.

any idea where the internal speaker is? mounted on mobo?

It is probably either mounted on the front of the case with wires that lead back to the motherboard. It would connect to the bottom of it, probably towards the middle.

Or sometimes there is the same place on the motherboard just has a tiny little speaker hanging off of it that doesn't connect to the case anywhere.

It should be in the manual that comes with the motherboard where this would be connected and how to disable it. You can download the manual online most likely if you don't still have it.
