asus maximus viii extreme and tthe 6f error code

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
  • What happened? after 1 week I started getting 6f MB error code.Win7 64bit would boot ok.The 6f code came up as windows was
    begining to start. never before as during posting.


  • Are you able to reproduce this problem consistently? yes, every time I boot up computer.


  • What steps did you take to reproduce this problem? As I stated every time I boot


  • What action did you expect to occur when this bug appeared? Did not expect anything because system booted


  • Any additional information that will help us diagnose the issue:Well I spent 10 hours on phone with asus tech support over 3 weekends.They trouble shot my ram,video card, ssd drive,clear cmos and went through the bios settings.I even flashed the bios
    in case it got corrupted and also installed the latest bios but no fix I still get the 6f error.I sent MB back to newegg and got a replacment
    MB and on first boot it all was good no 6f error. however on the next boot up BAMMM there it was again 6f error code and yes win7
    did start ok and everything runs ok on win7.

    My build spec's are:intel 6700k,2 sticks corsair dominator gt platinum 8 GB each total 16 GB,asus gtx 780
    video card,corsair 860 watt pwr.supply,corsair 110 water cooler and I did back off the screws which may have been over snug,plextor ssd just one256 g

    I tried booting w/ 1 stick of ram got same bf error code ditto on the other ram stick.
    Funny thing is bF is what the MB q-code shows I thought it was 6F so bF says reserved for future ami codes
    however the asus manual is printed BF in capitals and a 6F code is printed just as typed.A little confusing.


















  • Browser, active browser addons, and operating system:I use firefox no addons yet,OS Win7 64 bbit


  • URL where the issue occurs:

Based on the discussion in the ROG forums, that seems to be a memory related issue, since it was on two motherboards now, It might be a bad memory stick. Im pretty limited on time but recommend posting complete system specs so others can help.

I would recommend removing all but one memory module/stick and swaping them out while running one at a time to try to isolate it to one bad stick.

Also what speed are you trying to run the memory at? That could also be an issue.

Here is the discussion at the ROG forums, its for an x99 system but the codes should be the same

This is a bit old, but did you figure out what this was?

Are you sure it was 6F and not bF? The 6 that Asus uses actually has the horizontal line at the top of the 6 present, while the b is lower case.

Yes I figured it out a while back,it was a bf the error code readout should have used a capital B the small b looks like the 6 also.Thanks for responding.

Ha. What's 7 months in the life of a PC anyway? smile.gif

I had this issue on a Z170-Premium from Asus. I went round and round in circles with several support agents who didn't know what to do either. In the end they gave up and said RMA it.

LOL I went through the same thing with asus tech support,I sent my MB back to Newegg and got a replacment M8E hooked it up and
BOOM a 6f error code andt then I thought what if it's a bf that looks like a 6f and of course that was it.Asus tech support was zero help.
