Hey!

I'm helping a friend build his first PC and I'm unable to get a BIOS post at all. Specs:

ASRock X370 Gaming K4
AMD Ryzen 5 1600X
G.Skill Ripjaws DDR4 3000 16gb (8gb x2)

It will power up and go into a boot-reboot loop. The motherboard is showing an error code 46, which is apparently a memory-related code, regardless of how the memory is arranged in the board or if it even has any installed when powered on. I'm thinking the memory is incompatible since the Mobo's box lists DDR4 2400 as compatible, however Newegg says 3000 is compatible in overclock. I don't have any DDR4 memory to test in it's place, so any thoughts are appreciated!

Thanks!

That RAM is incompatible. Newegg must have thought you wanted Ripjaws DDR4 3000. I'd send it back and get DDR4. You'll have to pay a bit more. DDR4 is still pretty pricey. Good luck. BTW, I made the same mistake with one of my first builds.

RAM should be compatible but this time you probably had bad luck. It doesn't matter if RAM is 3000, 4000 or 5000 as it still supports standard SPD timings and motherboard uses first lowest SPD timings that in this case are probably DDR4-2133.

I misread the specs, I apologize. I guess my dyslexia kicked in and I mixed up the 4 and 3. That RAM should be compatible, you might have gotten a faulty module. Have you tried putting just one in to try? If it's a bad stick one fo them should work.
