Looking at the following:

or

Going to be any noticeable difference in real world use if I opt for the DDR3 1333 over the DDR3 1600?

And I'm putting this build into a full tower Azza Hurrican case that has 8 fans, so any reason I shouldn't just opt for the inexpensive version with no heat spreader here?

In real time you will not notice a difference between 1333 or 1600 ram but will be measurable. If you are going to run everything at stock the value ram will run fine, then why go with a 2600K when you can get the 2600 and save money?

i7 2600 isn't part of the bundle deal at Microcenter. 2600k is. With the bundle deal, it's actually cheaper to get the 2600k.

So if I overclock the CPU and have the value ram, that's going to damage the ram? Heat spreaders are that critical?

Makes sense then! Heat spreader will help the ram to overclock higher, you can still overclock the K CPU without overclocking the ram on LGA1155 but I would recommend 1600 ram as minimum if you are going to overclock.
