What memory pin does my MotherBoard support? (A68HM-Plus)

I've done something fairly stupid, wich is, buying a pre-made pc-desktop. I had no choice since my parents had me not make my own PC, wich is cheaper, and I would know what my motherboard, GFX card, Memory, etc. was in-depth--

My question is, does my Asus - A68HM- Plus (https://goo.gl/fLpG2H)
Support an 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 (https://goo.gl/1KX1gi)

I'm having this question, since i do alot of stuff at once, and my memory is limited by 8GB : 2 x 4GB, but in reality, i just realized i "needed" more than that. So i thought of upgrading it, to 12GB : 1 x 4GB and 1 x 8GB , wich should fix any issues performance-wise.

tl;dr - Does an A68HM-Plus support a 240 pin DDR3 1 x 8GB memory stick?

ps. I'm fairly new to this forums, and building PCs in general, and have had this problem for some time now. My main language isn't english, so i'm sorry for any grammatical error!

    Based on the Specs -- https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/A68HMPLUS/specifications/ Your motherboard supports 32GB in two slots, therefore it supports 16GB DIMMs. Your 8GB DIMM would work.

    Your 8GB DIMM may or may not work with your 4GB DIMM. Mix and match of RAM is a gamble. The best choice would be to buy a matched set of two 8GB DIMMs.

    Thanks! What risk is there to mix a 1 x 4GB and a 1 x 8GB? Would it fry the motherboard in any way???

  3. The risk is it won't boot or will blue screen. If the timings between the RAMs are different or the voltages are different you could run into boot issues, stability issues or BSOD. You shouldn't damage the motherboard.
