Hi i was wondering if somebody could tell me what i should use for memory with this motherboard. Asus M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 MotherBoard

Yes its a little dated i know, it can only use 1333 ram and not 1600.

Another question i have is can i only use 12gb of ram on a tri channel mobo. I know very little about how this works, and i was hoping someone could explain that as well.

Any information is very well appreciated, Thanks.

According to ASUS this MB supports 4 x DIMM, Max. 16 GB, DDR3 2000(O.C.)/1333/1066 ECC,Non-ECC,Un-buffered Memory, Dual Channel memory architecture.

So, it's a standard dual channel setup with support for 2000 MHz ram, but not 1600 MHz rm, which is unusual, but not unheard of. A good memory kit for this would be:
Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) Desktop Memory Model 996990

So u can use 16GB max, the sweet spot is 8GB of the RAM.
