Front Panel Connector
The front panel header is where the connectors of hard disk drive activity lights, case speaker, reset button, power on/off button, computer power on light, and key lock, are connected to make them function smoothly. In the past days, users always have difficulty connecting the front panel due to a lack of standard location on the motherboard. Today, AOpen integrated all these disorder but essential front panel connectors into one 20-pin connector for easy usage. Connecting the front panel would no longer be the headache of installing motherboard anymore. Below is a view of this user-friendly front panel connector of AOpen motherboard.
Hi there on the board there is a speakers socket( 2 or 3 pins) near the power connections for front switching,try booting with no ram after you get a speaker connected or piezo buzzer,change out ram if you can
could be the CPU is overheating, you may want to check and make sure all fans are working properly, as well as making sure you have a decent amount of thermal paste on your heatsink, i recommend antec silver.
4 things can cause this MB to do as you mention.
Bad CPU or the MB is not sensing the CPU fan and is protecting CPU from overheating.
Bad or inconpatible memory, If multiple sticks use only 1 at a time, This MB is known for having problems with both slots filled most of the time bios resaves can fix this but just set up with 1 first.
Reset the bios, Make sure the reset jumper is set back correctly.
Make sure it post without any extra harware hooked up first then add them.
The beeps are a old style of signaling the problem, You can find charts online that will tell you what the beeps mean long and short.
