DDR3 1600 running at a lower speed to achieve better latency.

very quick question:

i have 2 x 2GB ddr3 1600 c9 (9/9/9/24) memory

if there only a 1% difference in performance from 1333 to 1600 with the same latency, Could i run them at say 1066 or even 800 have a lower latency. Would this yield better performance?

my options are in the picture below

Depends on what you're doing with it, and what platform you're running on.
There is a sweet spot between speed and latency, that's what you need to find.

I'd be willing to bet that those sticks could run 8-8-8-24-x-2Tcr with a small ram voltage bump at 1600.

Probably be safe to use UP TO 1.65v without actively cooling the ram sticks with a fan.
