I bet you are running Win9x right? If I recall right those OS's use the "top" part of memory first and work down. So if your motherboard has a 128Meg cacheable limit, anything above 128 is slower then the stuff below 128, but still faster the swapping to disk. The winNT kernel does not have this issue as it works from the bottom up. I remember asking this same question on this board years ago regarding the TX chipset (64Meg cacheable limit). Some of my terminology is likely off... Sorry.
