Crosshair V Formula Z FF CODE??

Level 7
Hi im going to keep this breif, i recently purchased a V Formula z board & it died intsantly taking out cpu & ram.... it displayed FF before it died.. now i have a new board, i have connected all up but have not put a cpu or ram near it for fear of the thing going pfft again, the board stays lit up & no hot i rog chips ect, but it displays FF when turned on is this normal? please advise i realy dont want to risk it again, i have a rma on it but thought i would ask here first if the FF is normal with only the power cables attached to it.

Many thanks in advanced

Welcome to the Republic of Gamers forum, TheUnderdog!

That's a completely normal behaviour. There is no CPU present thus you're getting the FF QCODE.

Put the CPU in the board.
