well? the only thing i see is that the mulitis are lower but wouldnt that make it harder to OC cuz of bios if you dont unlock? or is there architecture stuff im missing?:D :eh?: :D
well, the FSB is 166Mhz stock, that's one big advantage. so far those chips are not going to overclock to good unless you get lucky but i suspect that will change in a few months.

that's about all i can say on these chips. i don't know that much about them.
There is no physical difference in the manufacturing process of the 333 chips. They are identical to the 266 chips but have a different multiplier, that is it.

If you have a board that can manipulate multipliers, it does not matter which chip you buy.

There is nothing that makes the 333 chips run with more stability or better at the higher bus speed.
