Looking at the board I'd say the RAM should be installed in pairs, the white together and the black together. I'd recommend going to Crucial to verify the RAM that will work in that machine. They will also let you know how much RAM the board will support.

Thanks. Just tried Crucial's system scanner and it said, "sorry can't identify your board" or something like that.
I'm searching for ASUS Q87M-A and all it comes up with is ASUS Q87M-E.

From what I read at the Asus website, that board uses a Q87 chipset which should take DDR3 1600/1333/1066 MHz like all their other Q87 boards. Any DDR3 memory matching those speeds should work. Assuming this is a standard motherboard, which I believe it is, and not some kind of small form factor board which only takes SO-DIMM, you could use two or four sticks of this memory.

You basically have 4 sticks of 2 GB memory, totalling 8 GB. You could put those 8 GB sticks and keep 2*2 GB sticks in place so you have 8+4GB = 12GB.
