Think the A7N8X has the pci lock unlike the Epox board, which will make overclocking much easier (though it's still in dispute whether the board has it)

The capacitors? Yes that is a problem with the board. How big is your water block? I'm not sure how much space is actully available around the socket, but they said an AX-7 heatsink can't fit it in, if that's comparable.

I initially thought they did without the holes but looking at the manual confirmed that they kept the 4 holes. So as long as your water block isn't biger than those dimensions it should be ok.

If you mean 333fsb as in 2x166MHz, then yes the KT400 supports it. And the nForce 2 should unlock the multi's on the recent chips as well.
