Anyone have any solid info on which KT333 boards will run the 333 fsb XPs? Epox site doesnt say except to say that my 8K3AE WILL run the 2600 but thats the 266 fsb.

No luck for you it seems http://www.aoaforums.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=10103&highlight=8k3ae.

Copy and paste from a Epox site:

Today marks the launch of the AMD XP2700+ and XP2800+ processors -

Based upon a 333MHz system bus, many of our competitiors inferior system boards are unable to support such processors due to their inability to run stably at the required host clock speed of 166MHz.

EPoX to the rescue. Our proven ability to run at in excess of 200MHz processor bus speed means that all of our KT333, KT400 and NForce 2 line up of mainboards are able to support these new processors. Exact mainboard models are:-

EP-8K3A
EP-8K3A+
EP-8K5A2
EP-8K5A2+
EP-8K5A3+
EP-8K9A2+
EP-8K9A3+
EP-8RGA+
EP-8RDA+

I read the tech post yet the Epox main page at their site says"333 fsb support for the entire 8k3a family".

I guess time will tell what the story is.

>>>>Dear User,

We are currently testing with the Athlon XP processors featuring the
333MHz FSB speed. Please check back with our website, once testing is
complete our CPU support list will be updated accordingly.<<<
