So, what, if anything, happens after the beep? Any change in display, responsiveness? Is the event always at the same time or place in the game, or in response to the same action by the player?

Thanks

Dick

Overheating would be my guess...is the overheating warning enabled in the BIOS?

Your computer is running nice and cool.  I don't believe this is overheating.

 

Are you running CrossFire X with your Sapphire graphics card?

Yes, the more sophisticated the game the more stress in places on the resources components which generates more heat.

 

The question I asked was the result of a brain fart.  It was dumb.  This at one time was known as CrossFire, it is now known as CrossFire X.

The graphics card is a CrossFire X.  It is not a mode of operation, it's the combination of two graphics cards for better performance.

 

Try Real Temp.

If you look in the Speccy you will see why I posted that this is not an overheating issue.  Your temperatures look very good.
