Friend of mine recently changed his tubes in his watercooled build. Went to turn the PC back on and he's getting an "FF" Code on his motherboard. He did not remove the CPU Block.

Motherboard is an MSI Mpower Z77.

Anyone have a similar issue before? I've read that the "FF" codes relay the CPU not communicating with the rest of the system on boot? Dead CPU or Motherboard?

Oh no, the dreaded MSI FF code curse. Check ram. I had that happen to me with my Mpower board. Both bioses wiped out for no reason. Review sample board so no RMA. I took it out to the range and had target practice with it.

Good Luck!
