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.
