my msi z87-g41 pc mate motherboard is dual channel so it has two blue and two black slots i have 4gb of memory the two blue slots are occupied by two sticks which i'm assuming is 4gb(2x2gb) I wanna upgrade to 8gb my question is if i were to buy a single 8 gig stick and put it in one of the black slots would that work and would it give me a total of 12 gb memory?

Thank you for your question.
I have had a look in to this system for you. This model can support a total of 64GB of memory over 4 memory slots. The memory does not need to be in matched pairs which means you can add a single 8GB module no problem at all.
You can see all the compatible memory modules on our website here: http://uk.crucial.com/gbr/en/compatible-upgrade-for//z87-g41-pc-mate
We do also have a great guide and support section on our website here: http://uk.crucial.com/gbr/en/support-memory
If you do have any other questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask.
