i put together a pc with these 4 items and a laptop 2.5" harddrive

i have been hearing this constant beepping. it's two short beeps every 10-15 minutes, even when the pc is off. checked the mobo manual, doesnt say any thing about beeps.

Off hand I'd say it might be a chassis intrusion alert - have you connected the chassis intrusion header correctly or is it possibly shorting out? If it's beeping when powered off I suspect that would be the root cause.

the manual doesn't say anything about this chassis intrusion thingy.… i left a lot of stuff unplug for the case due to laziness. could that be it? – Funky Dude Jan 16 '13 at 5:43
