EPOX 8RDA+ / 8RGA+ & 3 x 256MB sticks of Twinmos question

I was thinking about taking Komplett up on their weekly offer for 256MB 3200 Twinmos Sticks with Winbond chips.

Has anyone on the forums running with all 3 slots populated on either the 8RDA/8RGA series motherboards at or above 200Mhz FSB using either P3200 or 3700 sticks on Twinmos.

I currently have 2 x 512MB Corsair XMS 3500 and was wondering if I could squeeze a bit more out of 3 x 256MB Twinmos as I hear the 256MB modules usually have better overclocking potential?

Five days ago I was with 3 sticks 2x 3200 and 1x 2700 TwinMOS/Winbond BH5/6. When I was with all 3 stick I had to lower the FSB with 5Mhz . I think it will be better to buy 2x512MB PC3700.

Yes I think this is right. More ram sticks would consume more power, which is not good for overclocking.
