13inch MBP mid 2012 ram suggestions

Apple says max is 8gig - Crucial says 16gig. My question is, if I installed the 16gig would the CPU really use the 16 or just up to 8? Could other issues arise if 16gig is installed?

@Kongs23 Thanks for your post. Yes, you would be able to see all 16GB of memory in your system and use it. An article that explains why Apple often recommends less can be found here: http://forums.crucial.com/t5/Crucial-memory-for-Mac-systems/Why-do-Crucial-recommend-a-higher-maximu...
