I use a CUV4X-D and that lockups at boottime when the BIOS option
"MPS 1.4 Support" was enabled. You might try to disable this option.
AFAIK this option is enabled by default with all ASUS dual boards.

I do not think you will gain much doing so. Linux will use all available 
memory for caching anyway.
