Default Required help re.1333 vs 1600!

I know this is probably an annoying question, but I really am unsure of what to get! I currently have all the parts required to build my rig except the ram... I am tossed between 1333mhz and 1600mhz!

What I currently have is -

Mobo - http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128492

CPU - http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115070

GPU - http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130621

SSD - http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227737

HDD - http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136533

PSU - http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Produ [...] 6817139014

After Market Cooler - http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Produ [...] 6835185147

Case - http://www.nzxt.com/new/products/crafted_series/phantom

I am not currently overclocking, but may in the future! The ram I was looking at is -

and

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820104238

I am open to different brands and sizes, but overall the 2 things I really want to know is which is better 1333 or 1600 (now and future) and when I do overclock do I run a HUGE risk of overheating the 1600mhz!

Also, since the Sandybridge set can only run up to 1333mhz am I somehow damaging it by having 1600mhz?

Thank you and I look forward to reading your advice!

Go for the 1600MHz G.Skill set.

That motherboard you picked (which is now out of stock apparently) can take these memory speeds:
DDR3 2133/1866/1600/1333/1066
So you can have all the way from 1066MHz to 2133MHz.

Not true in the slightest

No. Memory will not overheat as long as it's running at the speed it's designed to. A 1600MHz set running at 1600MHz will not overheat - however if you tried running a 1333MHz set at 1600MHz, then chances are it would overheat.
