It will use all 12 GB but the memory will run in the lower performing single data rate (SDR) mode.
Eventually, you will want to remove the 4 GB chip and replace it with an 8 GB chip so that the memory runs in the higher performing dual data rate (DDR) mode. Not to mention you will have 16 GB of memory instead of 12.
