I have never even heard of that's a 650i though and the Asus P5N-E is a good board so I would think it would be pretty decent. There are better OC'ing boards around that price but that also supports 8x and 8x SLI so it just depends if you want the SLI or not.

If you do need SLI then I'm going to guess it will overclock decent but yet again that's a new mobo that I have never seen so I can't tell you for sure.
