The density of ice is less than water. Because of hydrogen bonding, the volume occupied by water in solid ice state is higher than in liquid state. So when ice was in water and the beakers were filled till the rim, as the ice melted down, ice starting to convert to water and occupying less of volume in the beakers.

So none of the beakers will overflow.
