no from what i read the x2 4400+ ran pretty even with the 955 EE so im guessing the x2 4800 would be right on with the 965 EE

Im guessing i can get 4 or a lil over on phase in which i will be happy if i do, i am very confident in my tweaking abilities

In order to increase the max stable FSB of your board...take a look at some of the Vmch mods which people have been doing.
Also, maybe it would be a good idea to lap your CPU if you are going for optimal air cooling temps at first.
Hope this helps...
p.s. I take it you have downloaded coretemp 0.91? That is a good conroe temp monitor...in case you need one.
