the chipset on that board is actually VIA KT266/8233
representing KT233 as Northbridhe and 8233 as southbridge controller of the motheboard.
this chipset in all version are on 266 FSB (and not 333), but you can run your processor on it, BUT also, it wont show clock speed which you are expecting, as in determining, clock speeds of processors, there are 2 things, Clokc Multiplier and FSB. so it makes your FSB = 133 (or 266 on DDR), and the clock is fixed, so when multiplied with 133 rather than 166, your actual clock out-put will be lower.
