Default Do I need 1600 DDR3 RAM for an i5 3570k system?

Or is 1333 enough?

I plan to do a very slight OC on it with stock coolers(at least for now).

I'm not sure what the timings and how the FSB will work with the lower rate.

If you have 1333, there's no real reason to upgrade.

Just go with the 1600, more competition in the category means cheaper prices. Also 1600 is the norm now a days.don't forget 1600 will hold more of a resell value when you upgrade you internals and switch to ddr4 in the next 3-5 years
