I think you might be confused a bit, there are two types of
frequencies. What is mentioned as 333 is the external one, internal
being 166. Your CPU is very likely to die if you don't have a very
good cooling system. You are technically talking about overclocking
your CPU. Depending on the exact serial on the CPU, you will find the
exact settings of what you can expect to run it as if you choose to go
down that road.
Now, I'd be very surprised if your motherboard didn't have a 200 or
266 setting anywhere in the BIOS (check out the manual, etc ...). You
might need to upgrade to the latest BIOS but that is very unlikely
since this is a common setting.
So what you need hoping that my answer is right, is to find that 266
setting, then clock your CPU at x12 as you mentioned in your original
