5 beeps occured, but my pc seems to be working just fine, however it did freeze for about 10 seconds directly before the beeps, and the fans were louder than they should have been. Is something off? I've had one of the better processors for 1.5 years now.

that is just your processor, I was after motherboard

I assume the PC is a custom build as otherwise, if it is a brand name, what make/model is it?

can you download and run speccy free version: https://www.piriform.com/speccy
when you open it, the default view is summary, if you scroll the right hand column down to motherboard and type out what it says under it.

Under "config", scroll down to SPBC and check "disable"
