Oh! Oh! A little knowledge is dangerous.
Yes, theoretically 7, 7, 7, 21 would be faster, but, it's also lkely the memory could'nt run at 1800mhz with those timings, maybe 1400-1500mhz.
You need to do a lot of reading and trial and error testing for stability/performance.
Be aware though that messsing with memory is dangerous. When memory becomes unstable, a little, the computer just crashes, but pushed too far and the memory starts making read\\write errors and that sends data to bit heaven. What data? Any data...OS gets corrupted kind of stuff.
I've played around quite a bit with memory over the years and some amazing results are possible, with enough trial and error. Just as an example, there are over 30 "timings", not just (the commonly adjusted) four, you can reprogram whatever timings you want into memory modules, yes, make your own SPD, memory runs cooler without any heat spreaders, and many memory "timings" don't make the memory faster, but make it more "stable" so other timings (that make it faster) can be set or the speed increased or both.
Good luck and go slow!
