    Unhappy ASrock Fatal1ty 970 performance does not POST 6 short beep code

    I have connected an ASrock Fatal1ty 970 performance with a AMD FX 6350 unlocked cpu, a crucial ballistik sport 8GB 1600mhz memory ram, and a PSU. I get 6 short beeps when turned on. No POST and no signal on display when i connect my video card. I keep getting 6 short beeps. Without memory ram i get 3 long beeps which makes sense according tohttp://www.asrock.com/support/qa/TSDQA-84.pdf
    With or without the Video Card i get 6 short beeps. If i add another memory ram I get 6 short beeps still but now i get 12 short beeps after that, then it keeps repeating like this 6 short beeps, 6 short beeps, 12 short beeps.
    Idk whats going wrong. Please help.
    Also, i cannot find anywhere online a list for beep codes for ASrock Fatal1ty 970 performance besides these links:
    ASRock > Support > FAQ
    http://www.asrock.com/support/qa/TSDQA-84.pdf
    Both links do not say anything about 6 short beeps. The mobo manual doesnt even mention the beep codes.

    I have a ASUS Geforce GTX 750 TI 2gb. I have also tried a MSI Geforce 210 1gb. I have placed them in different PCIe slots and still get the same 6 Short Beeps code. Even if i remove the video card I still get a 6 Short Beep Code.
    According to this ASRock > Support > FAQ I should get 5 long beeps for no video card but i dont get that either.

    There are some Ballistic Sport sticks that will not work on an AMD system. I have some here.

    Have you looked at Crucial's Memory Compatability page for this MB to see if what you have there is certified by Crucial to work?

    What I have here that will not work on an AMD system, the stick is labeled "BLS4G3D1609ES2LX0"

    These came in a 2x4GB kit. Kit p/n BLS2K4G3D1609ES2LX0

    Crucial was at one point offering free exchanges for newly bought sticks/kits.

    HERE's the NewEgg page for the 2x4GB kit

    And HERE's Crucials response to an AMD user that these wouldn't work for.

    Good memory, just not for an AMD.

    Thanks for the reply, I'll return the crucial memory rams and get another brand. What brand would you recommend? Also, why is it that i cannot find the beep codes for my motherboard online nor in the manual. Is it some kind of secret that they don't want to show. I just can't understand why wouldn't they be readily available.

    So that is the memory part number(s) you have?

    I'd like to be sure, as it seems memory related seeings you remove the ram and get three beeps.

    Yea, there are a few manuals that didn't for whatever reason have post codes and beep codes included in them. I dunno why.

    Convoluted to noobs, yet it's all there so long as you understand the POST process and how it progresses:
    https://ami.com/ami_downloads/AMIBIO...Beep_Codes.pdf

    Much simpler, but not thorough by any means:

    Default Re: ASrock Fatal1ty 970 performance does not POST 6 short beep code

    So, i've exchange the crucial memory ram for a kingston hx316c10fk2/8

    Here is a link for my build
    AMD FX-6350, Asus GeForce GTX 750 Ti - System Build - PCPartPicker

    When both memories are installed it still gives me the same 6 short beeps. The only difference is that when i only have 1 memory ram installed i now get 6 short beeps then another 6 short beeps then a final 12-short beeps and then repeats that same pattern 6short-6short-12short.
    I'm so confused. I have bought all these parts because pc part picker told me were compatible and because Microcenter peeps also told me it should work. I'm following every step just like this video from newegg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIF43-0mDk4.
    I've already exchanged the motherboard and the cpu and the video card and now the memory ram brand from crucial to kingston. The only thing i haven't changed is the PSU.
    I found this link for ASrock 970 Performance compatibility
    For CPU ASRock > Fatal1ty 970 Performance
    For RAM ASRock > Fatal1ty 970 Performance
    The exact module numbers from my parts are not exactly the same but they should still work i thought or so have pcpartpicker and microcenter have told me as well.
    For exampe, my exact CPU part is FD6350FRHKBOX and the site says FD6350FRW6KHK. My exact RAM is Kingston HX316C10FK2/8 and the site says KHX1600C9D3K2/8G. Is my motherboard really that picky?? Should i be buying the exact recommended parts as per that site???

    Thanks for your help.

    Unhappy Re: ASrock Fatal1ty 970 performance does not POST 6 short beep code

    Also, i have just realized that my new kingston are UDIMM memory rams instead of DIMM memory cards. My previous ballistix cards were DIMM though and still had the same problem. I will change these Kingston UDIMM for DIMM tomorrow. Hopefully that fixes it. :(

    Bear with me, this happens here more that you'd imagine.

    You did plug the 8-pin ATX into the upper left hand corner of your MB, didn't you?

    You're good. UDIMM is simply the "new' name for desktop memory.
