Yes, I've been using the board and CPU since November when it was purchased new. It's even been used in the same case, ruling out the standoff short that has happened to some.

Edit: +5V on power good pin is normal, and is required for the PC to boot.

I'm lost.

Is it possible to check the 8 pin plug in its as installed layout? I had to replace that cable on mine because while it worked fine in the open, when I pushed it down to clear the VRM heat sink and cooler and fan and other wires it quit working. A new one fixed it.

Hi,
Not quite sure what you mean here, do you mean to check the voltage on the passthrough pins? I could do that. Would probably just position the motherboard on a small bucket and read the voltages from underneath.

Oh, what I mean is that after I plugged it into the motherboard I mashed the wires down as flat as I could to clear other things in that corner and that caused a bad connection. When it was allowed to sit up at a better angle it worked fine. This pic shows how it is now coming straight up from the connecter and then looping around behind the board.

Ah, gotcha.

I have tried both. The cable I used initially was bent at an angle, but I tried again with a brand new, stock cable with the same result.

Requested a return service on the motherboard and CPU, and we'll see what the service gurus come up with. Thanks for the help.

I've seen the 'FF' code when booting mine and a black screen and i think mine problem was new Hyper Fury X 1800mhz RAM so i installed old 1600mhz ram and booted, so maybe try 1 stick of ram

Forgot to update the thread. The CPU had died, so I ended up swapping it out. After a while and three motherboard and two CPUs, I have finally ended up with a X99A MPower and a 5820K. Apart from some bad sticks of ram, no problems. Finally!
