Not a dedicated "beeper" per se. The diagnostic beep sounds would come through the audio.

Keyboard sounds are to indicate that some key or keys are being pressed. Some of those sounds, Num Lock, Caps Lock, can be suppressed.

Such settings are configurable via "WIN" + "I" > Ease of Access > Keyboard.

That said, after reading back, if the downshift to slower performance is a continuing issue use Task Manager or Resource Monitor to observe system performance. Boot up and watch what the computer is doing.

Very likely you will see some change when the system slows. May be, for example, some background app attempting to update, backup, or phone home.

There should be some pattern to the beeping sounds., Long beeps, shorter beeps, and in some repeating pattern. For example: 1 long beep, 2 short beeps.

Motherboard User Manual:

http://download.msi.com/archive/mnu_exe/mb/E7C37v1.1.pdf

A couple of beep codes are discussed on Page 73

For more beep code information:

The important part to correct match motherboard to the applicable manufacturer beep codes.
Sorry for the late reply

I'm pretty sure that none of the MSI motherboard's have a built in "beeper"
