The motherboard has a memory standard of DDR3 1600(O.C)/1333 and the memory I picked is a 1600, so will I have to O.C. the motherboard for it to work or will it just use 1333 if I don't O.C. it (don't want to O.C. it right away, just want the option later).

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

You don't OC a board. You base RAM speed on your overclock settings. This is done by manipulating memory ratio and block speed.

For example stock i5-750/i7-920/930 is 133 block with 10x multiplier for 1333. You won't be going at a higher memory speed unless you overclock the CPU.

Oh and 99% of brand name MOBO's out there have no issues with OCing to 1800.
