Gigabyte 7N400E-L beeps at me every now and again!

Hi All.

I upgraded my Mobo to the above and run the following system;
2500xp OC'ed to 3200Xp
1Gb OcZ pc3200 in Dual,
160GB Seagate
2 drives
9800Pro graphics card
Xp pro +sp2.

For some reason, the mobo beeps at me every now and again! It doesn't freeze or anything but its worrying me. Its not a succession of beeps, just one.

It does not do it when i'm not using pc , so I thought it could be to do with heat.

CPU is running at 60c. I had the same configuration in a Asus, and it showed 48c, so I'm aware that Gigabyte measure CPU temp differently that other manufacturers.

Other than that its all ok.

It could be a keyboard beep,mine does it somtimes when i press more than one key at a time,specially when gaming.

Or it could be the CPU actually is running hotter, and the board is warning you the CPU of this.

Thanks all.

I'm going to rebuild tomorrow and refit the heatsink with some decent gunk.
