As SB is overclocked via multiplier, not FSB, ram speed has little to do with the actual overclock achieved. If you're looking to achieve ridiculous clocks on subzero cooling, then you start playing with the BLCK which is actually tied to ram frequency. However, this is generally not recommended as it also affects all your peripherials and has shown to cause corruption in HDD data. For all normal overclocking purposes, RAM will not be a deciding factor in how high you can OC.

With a decent cpu cooler you shouldn't need to adjust your default ram frequencies, just the cpu multiplier. You are more than welcome to squeeze a little more out of it adjusting the blck (x100 default) though, just don't try using only that to oc.

So, ripjaws, kingston, corsair, any decent rep mem manufacturer at 1600

The lower the case lat and timings the better?

Don't follow this advice, adjusting the BLCK can cause corruption in HDDs and SSDs - not worth the risk at all when you can OC very high with just the multi.

And what does the cpu cooler have to do with ram frequency?

They really are all very similar, Sandy Bridge is incredibly easy to overclock. THe mobo will not be the limiting factor in your overclock, either you'll have to stop due to high temperatures or you've hit the max multi it can do. Pick a mobo that has the features you want, from a brand you trust. Asus, Asrock, Gigabyte etc. all have very similar products and none will provide any perceptible advantage in overclocking over another.
