his cpu probably would work just clock down horribly, most gigabite boards protect vrm by throttling down the cpu to safe power draw depending on the vrm temps.. msi however (whoomph flames!) as for the beeps as mentioned you need a case speaker connected to the front pannel. they are small round things usually with 2 wires sticking out of them. thats not the same thing as the pc speakers you listen to music or play games with. all it does is bleep. although i do have a pc here that plays full sound through the case speaker can be useful at times.
