Its best to have the same spec RAM when mixing with another RAM.

Whats the RAM stick spec?

Depends on what cpu your using......which you failed to mention. Celerons and Pentium G's only support 1066mhz memory. i3's support 1333. Ivy Bridge supports up to 2200+,

If some RAM is compatible with H61 Motherboards but is not listed in the support list, is it compatible?

Most of the time they are compatible over 99%. Memory has no issues running slower than their rated speed.

Yes, the QVL has just small number of the RAM.

There is a 100+ compatible RAM sticks : )

Make sure that u have 1.5V @ 1600MHz with XMP and u are fine.

ASRock H61M-DGS LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Supports: DDR3 1600/1333/1066 DDR3 1600 with Intel 22nm CPU, DDR3 1333 with Intel Sandy Bridge CPU.

If it supports DDR3 1333, can I choose any 4gb, 8gb that's not in the supported list?

So I can choose any RAM just as long as it is 1600/1333/1066 DDR3 2GB/4GB/8GB and 1.5v, even if it's not in the supported list?

Memory Support List

Qualified Vendors List (QVL) - ASUS calls it that way : )

Same thing as Memory Support List

Whatever you get, it's only going to run at 1333 cause i3 only supports 1333. However the board will support up to 2200mhz+ with an Ivy Bridge cpu.

If I were you I would get 1600 and just run it at 1333, then when you upgrade the cpu you'll be able to run 1600.
