Need suggestions on RAM
So i just got my 2500k and Maximus IV Gene-Z (thanks bigbui and Phabzor, respectively :punk:) and I need some RAM to go with it. I am looking into 8 GB of 1866 that is on the QVL for the board.

Right now, I am looking at this kit from G.SKILL: Newegg.ca - G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL9D-8GBSR

I wanna know if there is something better/more recommended out there, or is this a good kit for my upgrade?

If needed, yes I will be overclocking my CPU (If it isn't obvious :P)

It's a good price and it isn't huge like vengeance spreaders... looks good to me G.SKILL makes some of the most reliable RAM out there.

G-Skill is usually a great choice. I've never had a bad stick from them.

Samsung 30 nm Green PC3-12800 Low Profile 1.35 V DDR3 Review - Page 1/8 | techPowerUp

I can't recommend the Samsung 30nm green enough. One generation ahead of the competition, outperforms everything, uses less power, compatible with any heatsink, black PCB and easily overclocks to higher levels than what you need.
