Quiet but system keeps Beeping

Summary: Ok so my stock fan gave out, and installed the Arctic Alpine. Wow big difference in sound very quiet, but now system keeps beeping all the time. Tried resetting and reconnecting the fan ctr, no luck. Windows runs fine just would not stop beeping. It keeps the temp on my Phenom X2 well under 45 degrees so seems to be doing its job am guess the speed controller doesn't work well with my Asrock 870 motherboard.
Summary: On my ASrock AM3 motherboard, this cooler covers a much needed RAM slot, so I re-installed the old cooler. The old cooler was large, heavy and tall and was always in an upright case. Gravity caused the bracket base to fail. Unfortunately, this new cooler is just as big and heavy but not as tall as the old one. Because it is shorter and wider, it covered the RAM slot. This one becomes another product in the extra parts bin ...
Summary: While this cooler is ok for normal computer use (surfing web, watching videos, etc), if you play video games and overclock your rig any, you should get a better cooler. Running at factory settings with no overclocking what so ever, my cpu sits at 40c at idle. Running a stability test for more than 2 mins and it jumps to 70c. Overclocked from 3.4ghz to 3.8ghz, it idles at 54c and after 45 seconds of a stability test, it's over 70c.
Summary: Livraison rapide et matériel bien emballé. C'est important. Le montage est assez facile la colle intégrée sur la surface en contact avec le proc. Le démontage de l'ancien a été plus délicat. J'ai acheté cet appareil parce que mon ancien ventilo faisait du bruit. Celui ci refroidi mieux mais au niveau dB c'est pareil.
