Default Beeping driving me crazy!!! Please help!!

When I built my PC, I installed a card reader that had temperature sensors. One of the sensors is placed under the heatsink and I didn't know where to put the other so I just left it. The annoying thing is when it beeps whenever I load a video or multi-task and it drives me crazy! The sensor under the heatsink is fine, never beeps, but the one I have left out is constantly going off! I have even hung it out of the back near the far to keep it cool but it still goes off! It's not a beep from the motherboard, it's from the actual card reader and I have no idea how to turn it off. Does anyone know how I can increase the overheat temperature or turn it off?

You could just pull it out and use the sensors built into the board to monitor temps.
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64
