I recently tried to replace my 2gb ddr3 1333mhz(oc) ram with 4gb ddr3 1600mhz ram.My motherboard is intel dh61ww, I know it can only support max 1333mhz but still my pc won't boot with the new ram .why so?

check the ram voltages in the bios if you can---- what wont boot--- the BIOS -- windows---- will it even turn on-- do the fans spin on the CPU fan????? UMMM Also it it ecc RAM or NON ECC ram-- you definatly want non ECC ------


I think it is maybe a voltage thing---- what are the volatages for the 2 memory sticks

both rams have 1.5V, the machine won't even turn on , the cpu fan does not spin and its a non ECC ram
this is the ram:

actually removing the ram and power cord and pressing the power button for 10 sec did the trick.

thanks for replying :)
