The beeping is a warning that the new CPU is not accepted as a usable component.  However, it appears to be on the list of compatible CPU's, as you say.  What BIOS version is installed?  6.10 is available

Unless this is a new CPU, it could be defective.  Also, check for bent pins.

The bent pins I am speaking about would be on the CPU.
