You will have to flash the BIOS to ver. 1004 to get support for 1333 mhz. bus speed. Lower versions do not support it. Premium PC8500 1066 mhz. RAM should run at the advertised speed and above. Kingston HyperX is overclockers RAM and will likely run faster than it's rated 1066 mhz. on a premium system.

I have a question

Whats the difference between the P5B Deluxe, P5B Deluxe Wifi/AP and the P5B Deluxe Premium?

Im not talking about the wireless antenna or the Vista stuff, Im talking about in terms of perfomance and the board itself physically.

I know the P5B plain does not have the 8 phase voltage regulators which allows for stability when overclocking. The other versions of the P5B you mentioned do. I own the P5B Deluxe and the P5B-VM. The latter has a 4 phase voltage regulator and is a very poor overclocker. I don't know the specific difference in specs between the models.
