Hi;
I need to confirm my diagnostic.  My son's computer is based on the ASUS P4S8X-X,
http://www.asus.com/999/html/events/mb/socket478/p4s8x-x/overview.htm
when he is browsing and the site has a lot of images the computer will BEEP, there is not a pattern with the beeps, also if using iTunes with cover flow it will start beeping.

At first I suspected the Video card, changed it ant the beeps continued, so I opened the task administrator and selected "Performance", I found that the beeps where a little before than the CPU hiting more than 50% usage.

I suspect that the CPU may be overheating when has mid to heavy process running.
I'm planning on changing the cooling fan.

Any ideas before I do change the fan?
