Default Asus P5ad2 Deluxe?

My question is this; with the P5ad2 Deluxe, should I get the 533 ram or the 667? I know the 925 chipset natively supports 533, but Asus found a way to make it support 667.
Will I see much of a speed increase if I go with 667? What about
stability? If Asus made a "work around" that goes outside Intel's
specs for the 925 chipset, will that cause instability?
Also, should I go with the Premium version of this board too? The
Premium version seems more colorfull...
What are the main differences?

As far as I know with intel's, their Frontside bus at 1066 only has enough bandwidth for 533 ram. You also need to OC to be able to send that ram speed somewhere

Ah ha... so if I don't want to OC I should go with the 533?
