Default Single beep every 14-15 minutes

I have an Asus Maximus X Hero motherboard. I have the latest version of
Windows 10 installed.
For the last week or so, I heard a single BIOS/motherboard beep I think
every 14-15 minutes, though I only starting keeping track of the time
today. I have checked errors in the event viewer and have not found any
errors at the specific times of the beeps. I have 2 installed Samsung
SSD drives, one that I never use. I copied files to the one I do not
use, and it seems to be find.
Any idea as to what could be causing the beeps or how I can figure it out?

Anything showing on the Qcode display ?

There really should not be, as the QCode should go blank
after handoff to the OS.

It could be there is a SMART issue that the BIOS has picked up.

Use an OS loaded on a USB key, to run the system for a test.
During this time, you want at least the two SSDs disconnected
so that any SMART problem cannot be observed by the BIOS code.
With the SSDs disconnected, if there were no beeps, that would
be a sign it was SMART related. If the BIOS is unable to parse
the SMART table properly, it may arrive at a wrong conclusion.

Another kind of problem is CPU overheat.

When observing beeps, the frequency of the audio beep matters too.

The regular BIOS beep codes will all be the same audio frequency.
Abnormal codes, such as overheat, they will be at a different
frequency. (In some cases, a two-tone European police car tone
is used.) Some motherboards used to use a different beep for
USB plugins.

I would in general, not expect to find good information about
beeps in the manual. Even when the manual includes tables, the
tables aren't always up-to-date. My experience is, any kind
of code like that, when a person posts to USENET, and I look
it up, the value is in the Reserved section and is not
documented. You never seem to get codes that happen to be
documented.

You might also want to go back to the BIOS setup screen,
and go through the overclock section, and see if any of the
applied voltages are in the Red zone. Some auto-overclocker
features have been known to use abnormally high voltages.

Thanks, Paul! I'll try your suggestions and see what I can find. I
really appreciate your help.
