Suggestions on ram that I should get with my new z68?

Im going to get an ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 to go with a i5 2500k. Im looking at ram and im kinda confused on what to go with. ..I want to get something from corsair... So what should i get and why? I do plan to OC the i5!

Correct me if im wrong but 1600mhz sounds good. buying the higher mhz ram would only revert down to the 1600mhz speed without the overclock on the board right? but with the cpu overclock wouldn't that raise the ram too so should i just stay with the 1600? im confused :(
