Postcode 6F on Asus Maximus Extreme VIII

Hey folks,

I have this computer running for almost a year now.

ASUS maximus viii extreme
I7 6700K @ 4.2Ghz
16gb gskill trident Z @3000mhz
dual EVGA 980ti's
Samsung PRO ssd 256 and 512
Western Digital Black 1 TB
1300 Watt Rosewill Lightning PSU

As of last night the computer has been going into a boot death loop. It will load as far as the ROG logo screen then either say starting automatic repair, or it will try
to load and just hang. The only code I can see is a 6F, or maybe its a bF.

Anyone have any ideas on what to do?

I am planning on taking the thing completely apart piece by piece to examine the parts, then re-assemble.

This computer did the death loop when I first built her, but the problem fixed itself, and has not returned until last night.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

-Cheers

Hi Ranic85

Welcome to the ROG forum !

Before tearing your system down have you tried clearing the cmos?

A bios update might help too.

No I haven't tried anything with her yet. I went home late last night, and only got to play around with it for a few minutes. I will give that a shot first. Only other thing I could dig up is maybe the RAM needs to be reseated or a module might be defective.

Yeah try clearing the cmos and if no help try a bios update, it's possible the vccio and cpu system agent voltages may need raised a little for your ram, try both anywhere from 1.15v - 1.25v.

Thank you, I will give that a shot as soon as I go pick up the beast from the other house. I will update once I get through all that. Hopefully the problem isn't more complicated than that.
I really don't want to buy replacement parts when we are on the cusp of new generation tech.

I'd test the memory. The bf QCODE is usually memory related. And your OS doing automatic repairs probably pointing to defective memory or unstable overclock.
