Hello guys, I have an issue here with my motherboard or at least I think I can do. I have an Asrock A320M-ITX motherboard with a ryzen 5 2600x installed. Along with a low profile Noctua CPU cooler. For memory I installed the Team Force Vulcan 16GB(2x8GB) TLGD416G3000HC16CDC01. All this is powered a Flex  ATV power supply. I plan on building a mini server for my living room, hence the small form factor here. After turning on my pc I heard 4 beeps, so immediately I researched and read that it must be a memory issue. so I went out and bought a different brand. I bought the Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB(2x8GB) CMK16GX4M2A2400C16. I then turned my pc again, but again I heard the same 4 beeps. At this point I am out of ideas and patience. I have no idea what could be wrong. Any ideas guys would be greatly appreciated.

4 beep codes are generated when some of the Architectural Protocols are not available.

which means you bios doesnt supports your cpu, u will need to flash it

" rel="nofollow - How do I do that? Do I need to buy a last generation AM4 CPU( ryzen 5 1600). Plop it in the socket so I can turn on my motherboard and then be able to update the BIOS? Or just buy a different board. What do you recommend?

thank you very much sir. You have no idea how crazy I was going over here. I was literally going to ship everything back to newegg lol. That's how bad it was. I went to amd's website but the page that lets you request the amd boot kit is down for the time being. I just went to amazon and ordered an Athlon X4 950 for $60.00. After this I might just return it as I would have no use for it anymore. Thank you again for you help.....much appreciated.

if you still have the team group ram try to keep hold of it until you get the system booted

you may well find it behaves better than the corsair, you may find the corsair is better

the point is delay the retrns if you can until you test which ram kit plays nicer although 3000mhz should be a decent move up in performance from 2400
