Is CPU temperature monitoring and alarm a feature of your motherboard? And if so is it enabled?

If the answers to both are yes the CPU cooling fan may be inadaquate and the kernel's use of the machine resources may be overheating the CPU.

No. If the system BIOS is doing this Linux won't know anything about it.

Another possibility that just occured to me is that something might be "not quite standard" with the chipset or sound implementation. It would then be possible for odd things to happen when the kernel was "doing its thing" and that might cause the speaker or sound card to do something wierd.
