I have 2 sets of these (for 16GB total):

My question: I'm running an i3-2100 so I haven't given much thought to RAM recently, but plan on getting an i5-2500k or more likely an i7-2600k. Yes, of course I plan on overclocking :)  Do I need to consider this 'inferior' RAM since it's 1333MHz instead of 1600 like the core series controller, or better yet, will I have problems overclocking due to these being 1333?

Thanks

Nope, it should adjust to the ram speed by itself but if it's a k edition (you said your getting one) you can mainly use the multiplyer and you should get good resaults.
