Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

The processor in question is not shown on their supported CPU's list;
to add, the maximum ram supported is DDR3-1333MHz;
https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA1155/P8H61-MX/E7155_P8H61-MX.pdf
you could get lucky and drop in DDR3-1600MHz rams but they will effectively run at DDR3-1333MHz due to the chipsets limitations.
hi thanks for the welcome

So the i5 3470 processor won't run on p8h61-mx? Do you have a solution to make it work? Even though I already bought the item :(

Ask first, then go buy.

As for the support for that processor, latter revisions of the board have the i5 show up on their supported CPU's list. Sadly there's nothing I/we can do...we don't dictate what is compatible or not on a motherboard.

the seller didn't tell me in detail about the motherboard and said it was a motherboard with socket 1155 and chipset h61 because I wanted to upgrade my motherboard so i bought it :(

Thanks for the answer, maybe I'll sell my processor and RAM to buy something that supports it.
