Hi there. I have the Epox 8K3A+ as well and YES it does run very stabily at 166FSB (333).
Ive got a XP1700+ running at 10.5x166 = 1750Mhz.
My board is a Rev 1.2. I dont believe the 1.0's had any trouble either running at 166FSB.
The only thing you might possibly need is a fan for the Northbridge heatsink. But mine runs well as only a passive Heatsink.
You will need the latest BIOS update though.
Edit: Oh and like many KT333 based chipsets, 166FSB was quite possible, but not officially supported. Thats why the barton didnt show up in the official compatibility sheet.
For your info, bios files and a nice specialist EPOX forum can be found at: <A HREF="http://www.aoafiles.com" target="_new">http://www.aoafiles.com</A>
