    On intensive CPU load / graphical load a constant beeping noise is heard
    through the computer internal speaker. On closer inspection and running
    tests it appers that the -12v is only reading -9.7v and the -5v is
    reading -4.7v. The computer continues to operate normally with no other
    problems but is irritating due to this beeping noise. The only way to get
    rid of the beeping noise is to restart the PC . However, on occasions
    isolated beeps are noted and a reduction in power is observed to the PC as
    fans can be heard to slow and then reutrn to normal spped again. Can yopu
    please shed any light on this matter or is there a fault with the
    motherboard voltages. A quick reply would be most grateful.

    Mine did this and it turned out to be that the CPU warning temperature ws
    set to low.

    I wouldn't worry about the -voltages; my board seems to do this as well.

    You'd better keep an eye on the processor temperature. You may have a
    bad heat sink application that's allowing it to get too hot. Anything
    over 160F is cause for concern. Your setup disk contains ET4 which
    allows you to monitor the temperature and voltages.

    Also, apparently these boards don't report the negative supply
    voltages correctly, so you can safely ignore these readings.
