7161, I havenĀ“t heard of two cores not showing activity, but almost every 8 core machine has no activity on the last 8 meter in the Logic performance meter but it is more a graphic bug than a "physical", cause if you open OSX activity monitor you can see that all cores are working.
In your case, open activity monitor and have a look, in case something is wrong with your machine.

You can also see the overall CPU load there, jumping up to almost 600 percent before CPU overload, meaning every core is working almost 80 percent load at the same time which is really good, but it will be even more optimized in Snow Leopard.

And track count on 44.1 / 24 bit is now not an issue anymore, several hundred tracks with no plugins should be no problem without RAID systems.
