sorry I'm not sure which way to go with the RAM either. I would want certain parts of my build to be future proof and I have already bought the mobo but everthing else can be changed around the mobo.

I would prefer not to overclock my cpu, is their any real need for the i5 4670k or can I keep the 4570? also I'm not to familiar with the Patriot viper brand, could you recommend a more known brand.

It will be shame to waste such a good motherboard with locked Intel processor. Yes you can keep the 4570.
The Patriot RAM is well known and makes good products
