I chose it due to the speed, reviews, and CAS latency. However, if I wish to OC my CPU to at least 4.4ghz or so, is there a certain RAM someone would better recommend? And why?
More aboutspeed question
Most ddr3 ram sticks these days are fast. overclocking youre cpu will not effect the ram, however, there is no need to overclock the cpu, its fast enough as it is. unless youre 3d HD video editing. but yes that ram will be fine.
For Sandy Bridge systems like yours and mine, overclocking the CPU is completely independent of the RAM.
If you do wish to overclock the RAM, that kit seems to do quite well in reviews.
