It's possible your system is reacting to the lack of a detectable CPU fan RPMs. Try reconnecting the cpu fan to the motherboard, post the system, go into bios then disable any RPM monitoring on the board. Then, plug the fan back into the Scythe and see how it works. Let us know!

i don't have the cpu fan plugged into the fan controller

So what is plugged into the controller? You can always do a "trial and error" test and just start putting things back to where they were before you had the Scythe.

check the manual. the beeping is a warning. did you setup the sensors correctly? what does the temp say?

Well first get your system running again, unplug everything from the controller and get your system to Post.
