I've not seen a current ASUS board that wouldn't run 16 GB of good Corsair memory, but don't run 4 modules - this will limit your BIOS settings, for sure.

8GBx2 I would think runs, Corsair's 'support' table tends to err on the side of being overly conservative, but I have been wrong before. Is there a way you could test it at your dealer before buying, just to make sure?

Try posting at GamersOnLinux as well, I usually stop in here to help folks but there are a lot of our *aces* are easily available there.

PS: All that extra memory means nothing unless you are running a 64-bit OS due to the 4 GB limitation of 32-bit. Are you?
