The beep comes around every 5-6-7 seconds and lasts about half a second or so. Anyone who knows what it can be? Have updated everything and went through troubleshooting with no sucess.

Update your post to include full system hardware specs and OS.

What audio software/apps are you using?

Are the beeps coming from the case or heard in the headphones/speakers?
Im only using the recomended from the ASUS website. The beeps are coming from inside the case.

Which Asus model motherboard?

What components are installed?

Listen very carefully to the beeps and beep pattern.

The beeps may be combination of long and short beeps.
I have,

ASUS TUF Z390
i7-9700K
ASUS Strix 2070 Super
HyperX 16GB 3200mhz
Dark rock pro 4 cooler
And some ssd's and one hdd

The beeps are very inconsistent, no specific pattern

Noted: "some ssd's" - how many ssd's?

The beeps may be those that occur when there is an error of some sort. For example trying to close a configuration window before closing some property window or other window therein. Or some inapplicable key press.

Open Reliability History and Event Viewer.

Look for error codes and warnings, even informational events for that matter, that are being logged.

Especially any log entries that began appearing when the beeping began.

i got 2 ssd's. one 120gb for windows etc and one 500gb for games etc.
Checked both Reliability History and Event Viewer, but could not see anything that i know is wrong,

The beeps only happen inside the pc case when im playing any sort of audio, watching youtube or listening to music.

There are no beeps when posting into windows etc.

16,4 being 16.4: you use a comma instead of a period to indicate the fractional part if I understand correctly.

That said, I believe that the 120 SSD is too full. I prefer to limit drive usage to no more than 70-80%.

You drive is at roughly 86% full.

And that may be causing other issues that result in beep codes.

Run Task Manager and Resource Monitor and observe drive activity and performance. (Run both but only one at a time.)

Get a sense of what apps, services, and processes are writing and reading to the 120 GB SSD.

Has Windows Disk Cleanup ever been run on the drive?

Take a look at the drive first as is and uninstall any no longer used apps. Likewise delete obsolete folders and files. Clear out what you can and then run Disk Cleanup. Do not defrag a SSD.

As always, before doing anything, be sure that all important data is backed up and proven to be recoverable and readable.
