bx chipsets have a limitation of 128mb per bank for non-registered dimms
afaik. ie. 256mb dimms that are two-bank will work as expected, and
256mb dimms that are one-bank will be seen as 128mb. generally two-bank
256mb dimms have chips on both sides of the module, whereas one-bank
jobbies have it on one side... found this out the expensive way :-(

of course this isnt relevant to abit kt7 boards but it does sound very
similar.
