Please explain "don't use the full power of" and "barely keep up." That makes no sense at all. Also, don't forget that when OC'ing these things you can often pass 400FSB quite easily which makes the DDR2-800 RAM quite necessary.
If you have the money, the P5B Deluxe is probably the best C2D mobo out right now.
