I have an EVGA 680i mobo (a couple of years old). A few days ago, I noticed the digital display showing FF.
Does any one have any ideas on what this might be refering to?
Thanks

The FF isn't good. Check your 4 pin and 24 pin power connections to the board, and make sure the bios chip is seated properly in the socket. If it still comes up with the FF, call EVGA. If the 680i has life time warranty (a lot of EVGA's products do), you'll get a new board after shipping that one back.

This is assuming the board is not booting. My EVGA board only shows FF if there's a major issue. If it is booting, then it's the end of boot cycle display.

FF Means fully functional, it's the last Code that SHOULD be shown. If it just sits there, try the above things mentioned. Otherwise you're SOL and need to RMA

The FF stands for 'Fully Fu(k3d'...

Make sure all the power connectors and signal lines are fully removed...take out the chip and the ram then drive over it with your car.

Don't bother RMA'ng it ,no sense throwing good money after bad.The 680i is the worst POS chipset ever made ....F$%!%$#&**

Well, if my book is any indication FF is the hex code for boot, if the display stops anywhere else then you would read that code and find the problem. The Fs are not letters in this case but numbers, 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,a,b,c,d,e,f for the hexadecimal count. Also would be 1111 1111 in binary for all you geeks out there! So, the question would be, does the computer boot? If so, then it should be just fine.

LOL I just watched your thread's videos like yesterday. I can see that your anger and frustration is the type that lasts for a life time! Perhaps you should be offering 680i funeral services. :haha:
