ASUS P4GE-V
4 weeks old
2.8 ghz p4 533mhz
512k mem 2700 ddr

My cpu always "overheats" everytime I play games or just randomly. It beeps all the time and is very annoying. My heatsink/fan runs at 6500+ rpm and the temperature bottoms out at 98 degrees F. I checked the air comming out of the heatsink/fan and it is only slightly warmer than the surrounding air. I have 1 case fan. The problem arose from nowhere when the comp was only 2 weeks old. Now it beeps all the time when running games. It even beeps randomly when no programs are operating. I need to know how to stop the beeping.

Overheating is not usually an issue with a P4 unless you changed the heatsink. Some of the rectangular type heatsinks that are flat on the bottom will make contact with the four pins that hold the retention bracket onto the motherboard not allowing it to come in good contact with the CPU.

I checked the heatsink and it does not come into contact with the bracket.

Obviously this is not the stock heatsink that comes with that CPU, So have you tried the original fan and heatsink combo on there?

Yes I have tried the original heatsink but it doesn't make a difference.

Well I don't think this is an overheating issue anyway 98F = 36C which is about the norm for this setup. Have you run a virus scan on there? Think back to before this beeping started happening and see if you can remember adding anything new to the system.

The temp is OK but I would like to know why it's beeping.

How does the beep go is it one short beep continuously or does it change?

it beeps in radom tones every second or so. i checked the manual and it said that type of beeping means the cpu is overheating

Is the CPU fan connected to the proper header on the motherboard and is it the three wire type?

And what is the bios version number of your motherboard?

When you first turn on your machine the first screen you see hit the pause key. You will see on one of the top lines Asus with your motherboard name followed by Bios Revision XXXXX this is the number we're looking for................:D

There have been bios updates.

Did you install Asus Probe off of your motherboard disk?

If so have you been monitoring the temps with it?

I'll check the manual and see if there is a setting for your CPU temp alarm.
