ASrock b450m pro4 bootloop help

Hi guys,

I recently got all components I ordered for building my first PC. When I connected everything and pressed the power button, PC turns on and stays that way for about 30 seconds and then reboots. And continues along the same pattern.

Here are the specs:

Processor: Ryzen 5 1600x

Cooler: Hyper 212 turbo LED

Motherboard: ASROCK b450m pro4

PSU: Corsair VS 550

RAM: Crucial CT8G4DFS824A.C8FE (8GB DDR4 2400Mhz UDIMM)

GPU: GTX 1060 3gb gigabyte windforce oc

I know that this RAM is not compatible, but I tried turning it on without the RAM and I got the same issue. Also when I connected the GPU, fans start spinning couple of seconds after initial boot, then stop spinning, and I did not get any display output to the monitor. So I decided to remove the GPU until I fix the booting problem. So my question is, if I get compatible RAM sticks, will this solve my problem? Or could the problem be more serious?

What Thermal Paste are you using. It sounds as if the CPU is overheating

Are you sure? The parts are brand new and this happened the very first time I booted

The thermal paste I'm using came with the 212 cooler

That rules out overheating if the Cooler is working correctly. Onwards and upward

Thanks, I'm guessing the problem is the RAM itself (hopefully). Wondering if anything else might be an issue

It's not going to go anywhere without RAM.

As a matter of interest: How did you match your MOBO, CPU, RAM and PSU?

Used the pcpartpicker for everything. In terms of RAM, I kind of just went with it when I bought it to try it out. Aside from the RAM everything else should be compatible

Thanks, I put 2x hyperx fury 2400Mhx 4GB (HX424C15FB/4) and it worked
