my sector 5 is holding me back then?

This is OCN, so I would say give it a go. Take the frequency up a bit at a time or try dropping the latency and see if you can boot into windows.

both my sticks are rated at 1.65 for 1600

but i run them at 1600 cl9 1.5v cl8 1.53

Yeah, I'm trying to tighten my timings as much as possible. Since you have a decent Overclock, I'd keep the RAM @ 1600Mhz (or even drop to 1333) and try CL7 @ 1.65V's.

Personally I don't think you should choose one over the other (ie CAS over freq or vice versa) Both play their role so try to find a decent mid-point with a low latency and high frequency

Just do some sandra benches

You could likely run the 1333 CL7s at 1600 CL8, maybe CL9. They are probably functionally equivalent, just depending on how you want to clock them.

Increase the voltage to the rated 1.65V

In many bencharks the bandwidth of 1600 CL9 will slightly edge 1333 CL7 (though they are about equal), but 1333 CL7 gets a lower latency. It would likely depend on the task and gaming usually prefers tighter timings for lower latency/response, which can be important in things also such as network ping. Have you tried 1600 @ CL7-8-7 though perhaps? And at rated voltage?
