What kind of RAM would be best suitable to OC this?
you will be glad you waited. for ram, any ddr3 1600 ram will suite you just fine. I usually buy gskill since it is relatively cheap and performs well but that is just personal preference. Just make sure that you set it up in a dual channel config, not triple channel, because the new 1155 chipset for sandybridge is reverting back from the triple channel config that was used in the first gen i7s
edit: the ram you have picked out in your build will do nicely actually
