I don't see the CPU specifically listed on the motherboard supported CPU list. If it's not listed, it's generally not safe to assume it will work. In fact it's pretty likely it won't.
EDIT The i5-3450 or i5-3450S are both on the list and should be a similar price to the CPU you bought if you can find them. Perhaps you could swap for one of those? Alternatively a different motherboard like the Z77E-ITX has the CPU you have in the support list in later bios versions (or the cheaper B75M-ITX).
EDIT EDIT Any reason for not going for a Haswell (Socket 1150) processor on a new build now? They are a bit quicker and readily available. These Ivy Bridge chips seem to be in quite short supply...

It was listed under compatible boards on intel's page for i5 3350p so I thought it was safe to buy: http://processormatch.intel.com/MotherBoards/CompatibleBoards?componentName=i5-3350P
I went with the 3350p because of its power efficiency and then picked the asrock mobo because it was on sale.

Interesting. Well either Asrock's site is wrong or Intel's is. Perhaps a call to the retailer or Asrock technical support will clarify. Here's an alternative search on Asrock's site for boards that support that specific CPU - http://www.asrock.com/support/cpu.asp?s=1155&u=509 The H77M-ITX doesn't appear on it, unfortunately.

One other thought. Do you have access to a basic PCIe graphics card you can try (perhaps from an old PC?).

Cool, well it's good to know what's causing it I've used Corsair Vengeance Pro stuff with a i5 Haswell and it worked fine. I wouldn't have guessed that would caused the issue really as their quality is quite good normally.
