Adding 64MB RAM on a VX motherboard

Hi,
  I'm running an AMD K6-233 on an Intel VX motherboard.  I currently have 64MB EDO RAM as 2 32MB SIMMS in banks 0 and 1, and I have 512k SDRAM cache.  I was planning on adding another 64MB RAM in the form of another 2 32's, but I've heard that having more than 64MB on a VX motherboard somehow disables the cache.  Is this true, and if so, is there any way to get around it?  I'm dual booting between Win95 OSR 2 and Win NT4.0 (SP3), so if it's an OS issue, will either of these systems still take advantage of the cache after the upgrade?
Thanks in advance,

Bill

Yes it is true, and no there is no way around it other then to get a motherboard that supports >64MB Cacheable RAM (but that means going for PPro or expensive PII solutions). and it is not an OS issue, it is a Hardware issue
