I think your question relates to the FSB speed.

The Motherboard shows actual cycles per second, and newegg is showing the DDR (Double Data Rate) speed.

Since you get two pieces of data per clock cycle, the setting on the motherboard is doubled. So, if you want to run your processor at the 333MHz FSB, select 166 MHz FSB speed in your BIOS when you set up the computer.

(166MHz x 2 = 332MHz)
