Latency generally determines performance, where as speed does not. When OCing processors without unlocked multipliers the RAM speed can be pushed too high and therefore limit your OC. Therefore if the budget can support it 1600MHz RAM is recommended to high OCers to allow more headroom compared to 1333. You are looking at a processor with an unlocked multiplier so it doesn't really matter. However I'm thinking you have a massive budget anyway.

With that finished, I must ask why are you buying a 980X? What are your needs for this highly priced processor?

I'd say Kingston HyperX, however I would rather some G.Skill's.
