constant beep sound while gaming

Hello all,

This just started today. after about 5 minutes of gaming I get a constant beep sound. I have never had this before. I have run Crysis for over an hour while fans are running high but never a this beeeeeeeeep sound. I am running the 260 sli with t9600 with 295.86 drivers. It happened while playing fallout 3 and it also happens with Fear 2. When I pause fallout 3 the beep stops after about 3 seconds then it starts again after about 5 seconds of playing after leaving pause screen....

Is there an alarm that I am not aware of when temps get too high.

Thanks

EG
