|Is there a specific place you would recommend looking initially? To be honest I haven't heard it since I posted this. I use Ubuntu 9.04 and Windows XP SP3 and while I believe I might have heard it in both operating systems (maybe not though) it occurred at a lower frequency in Ubuntu 9.04. Also, I may have reduced my FSB about 50 MHz after I posted this, but I could be wrong. |
The Core 2 Duo E6600 hovers around 3.05-3.07 GHz clock per core and I have never seen it go about 45 degrees celsius even after I ran a huge file system operation over night and it was clocking at about 3.25 GHz per core. At around that speed it is *normally* about 41 or 42 degrees celsius. If these beeps start up again I will definitely get to the bottom of it.
I have an ASUS P5B Deluxe Wifi-AP edition motherboard with the latest beta BIOS (haven't noticed any other issues however). I remember seeing one review where the reviewer stated that the motherboard I have is not good for overclocking as he couldn't get the FSB over 333MHz. Of course, that might have been close to when it was released.
