So does it go through the post codes and then give FF with nothing on the screen, or does it go straight to FF? FF usually means everything is fine unless it goes straight to FF or 88 with nothing else showing.

2 possible things. The CPU was a dud and caused a short so your old CPU wouldn't work anymore.
Or, the PCI-E card for the SSD screwed up PCI-E causing nothing to be sent to your GPU.

No post codes, just FF. Based on my research it's very rare for a bad CPU to kill the board. I had the board for 9 years and only just overclocked it about a year ago. There were no problems but just moving it after heavy overclocking is probably what killed it.

No worries, time for an upgrade anyway. I'm considering going with a GIGABYTE Z370P D3 and an Intel Core i5-8400 Coffee Lake 6-Core .
