Asrock h61-vg4 (ivy bridge & ddr3 1600 / sandy bridge & ddr 1333)

Hi all,

Just wanted to post this for anyone experiencing boot issues with the ASROCK H61-VG4.

SPEC
ASROCK H61-VG4
Celeron G1620(P0) Ivy Bridge 2.7GHz (1155 IVYBRIDGE / CHIPSET)
RAM 4GB 1333MHz
1TB Samsung spinpoint F3

On completion of build
- computer would boot and then shut down after around 5 secs.
- could not get into the bios as computer would shut down prior.

solution / fix
installed 1600MHz RAM and computer booted with no issues.

(I usually use gigabyte mobos so never experienced this before.)

Manual states, "Memory - supports DDR3 1600/1333/1066 non-ECC memory (DDR3 1600 with Intel Ivy Bridge CPU, DDR3 1333 with intel Sandy Bridge CPU)

Anyone else had this type of issue with specific CPU to RAM MHz match to get a board to boot?

By "boot", do you mean POST? Did you get any beeps? Perhaps the 1333 module(s) is bad or the wrong voltage.

I believe carwiz is correct, it was either bad ram modules or improperly seated modules, which is easy to do.

yes sorry. post. Strange as i tried 2 x 1333Mhz modules one which i know works well and both times the computer booted up for 5 seconds before shutting down again.

however, as soon as i added the 1600mhz ram the computer worked perfectly no issues.
