Problem With Asrock H61M-GE and 16Gb of Ram

Hello there,

I put together a new system and for some reason cannot get the system to recognize more than 16gb of ram. in fact the system wont even boot to bios with more than 3 sticks installed.

I have a 4 pack of 4gb ddr 3 pc 1066 . my Mobo is Asrock H61M-GE with a Core i5 2500k

I have the bios to default settings with no oc of any kind.

new install of windows 7 x64

i have the lastest BIOS update a Good PSU Sun FLower 850W and a Nvidia GPU GT430. :( :(

  1. is your ram single sided? to run 4 sticks they must be for this board.
  2. All Ram work fine, the problem is when insert another DIM my mobo enter to a power cycling on and off routine, and this is driving me crazy

    It's an H61 chipset limitation, you'll need a new motherboard.

    and also "Due to chipset limitation, if you plan to install three or four memory modules on this motherboard, please install only single-sided memory modules." from the page you cited.
  6. sorry to change the subject but why would you put a k class processor on a h61 chipset you cant overclock it, at all! Also why are you wanting so much ram i know its cheap at the moment but unless you doing some serious programing your not even gonna use half of it. are all the ram sticks running at the same voltage i noticed its cl7 sometimes that is achieved by bumping up the volts and if your bios is picking up the lower maybe thats causing the prob. possibly get it to boot go into the bios slightly bump up the ram voltage then give it a go, its such a waste putting a 2500k on that board!
  7. Was a Combo offer, never mind, i bought another RAM and i think I'll have to buy another motherboard, but not now because I spend a lot of money!
  8. Why do you even need that much RAM?
