Shuttle beeps while running - how to turn off?

    Hello all! I've just pieced together a Shuttle SB61G2 with a P4 2,6
    GHz CPU, some ram, a cd burner and a SATA disk. Now, it works great,
    but whenever I put the processor under load (like *starting*
    Photoshop), the computer emits a continous high pitched beep. This
    I've gathered is a warning of CPU overheating, but using monitoring
    tools I see that it stays at its usual temperature of 45-49 degrees
    Celsius. Mainbord is at 41-42C and HD at 55-56C. I hardly think these
    temperatures are damaging to my components, so I'd like to find a way
    to delay the beeping, as it's tremendously annoying to listen to.

    So, does anyone know how to disable this beeping? I scoured the BIOS
    settings, but haven't found anything regarding this.

  2. I *think* I have heard of such problems. Something about coils in the
    PSU/power converters that makes a high pitched sound. People has tried
    to pour glue or such over the coils, in order to quiet them down.

    I would ask here:

    in the Shuttle XPC forum.

    Update: I think I've narrowed it down to overheating of my SATA hard
    disk (DiamondMax 9). I noticed that when I do a broad search on the
    HD, the system would beep noisily. It did not, however, emit a single
    beep when doing the same thing with the harddrive stationed outside
    the box. I'm going to try and move the harddisk to the floppy slot and
    maybe fix a fan to it to see if the problem goes away.
