FF code

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Asus p6t7 mobo, i7-920 CPU, psu. This is what I'm trying to post with for first time. I have already been through 2 mobo and 2 psu. Still on first CPU. Every time I have gotten FF code. The blue light comes on at pcie slots and stays on. After several attempts the blue CPU light comes on and stays on along with pcie light. This was the same result as the first mobo and psu. Only thing left is CPU right? That's the only 3 things connected unless could it be a bad ground somewhere? That's all I can think of but I don't think I can handle buying another CPU for it not to work.

I was just going to suggest in your last thread to open a new one here to get the proper exposure thumb.gif

For starters It would help us if you put your computer parts into the rigbuilder tool so we can all see what you have. It will should up like the 2 computers I have at the bottom of my signature (nerd boxes). To do that, you can select your user profile and scroll all the way down and you will see a link that says "create a new rig" and just go from there. No need to enter prices or anything, just enter what you have. OR at the very least, include a nice list of everything your pc has with make and models.

OK it looks like I might be able to come up with the money for another i7-920 CPU. Anything better for similar or lower price? I swear my gut says its the mobo that's bad again. It was last time and my tester showed the psu bad as well. I'm getting same results as last time so I am assuming the same problem. But 2 mobo and psu! What could make them go bad twice if my gut feeling is right. Well still on original CPU so ill try that since it looks like lga1366 socket cpu's are alot cheaper now.

Hum, so I did a code FF search and found this thread on OCN, He has put a few good steps to code FF:

----

So wait what is the timeline of events...you mentioned the mobo and psu went bad but replacing them fixed it for a period?

No it didn't. I got all parts back in about 2009 except ssd and Gpu. At the time it was all top end parts and I spent a small fortune. Same time I met my better half and haven't been able to complete build till 2 months ago when I purchased Gpu and ssd. 2 months ago I fried first mobo in mishap with water cooling. Second mobo, first psu and CPU, and CPU fan I did first boot. I got FF code with blue light by pcie slot on first try. Second and several more tries i got FF code and blue lights by pcie CPU and sata did random things every try. I figured mobo but tested psu and it was bad probably from first mishap with water I assume. So second psu, third mobo and when I try to post I get FF code with blue light on by pcie slot and sometimes the blue light by CPU is on when I try and sometimes not. My hope is that I fried mobo, CPU, and psu with the water the very first time. This would mean new psu and mobo is fine I just have to replace CPU. Also every time I only use psu, CPU, mobo, and fan. Leave BIOS battery out and reset BIOS.

Man after all the parts swapping you did, logically it has to be the cpu. Must of been a good short with the water mishap.

Im almost wondering, unless you find a deal, it may be more cost effective to just get a used intel 1155 (sandy/ivy bridge) cpu/mobo setup if you want to cut your losses.

What I was thinking but I have water blocks on everything and hate to let that extra be wasted as well. At this point I'm goin with a CPU. If that's a no go then I will just have to wait a year to get new mobo CPU combo with water blocks.

I had koolance water blocks on everything. The ones for the ram just slip togather and use orings to seal. I was messing with something and my knuckle bumped one and that's all it took to spray everywhere. Then one of them leaked. I cut them out of the loop all together after that. Think I was testing water system because I thought pressure was low and curious if a pump was bad. When I cut them out water flow improved greatly. If you look at the inside of the block design its very rescritive. With koolance blocks on mobo, CPU, Gpu, four radiators, two reservoir, with two pumps I get decent flow. Enough that the three drive bay waterfall I made looks like a waterfall but it just barely looks that way.
