In my experience with DDR3 atleast in tri-channel, running at a greater frequency > than having lower timings as far as the overall gain.

Ie. You would net more from having your memory running at say 1600 @ 9-9-9-24 vs having it at 1066 @ 7-7-7-24; the latency has been cut in half vs ddr2 even with higher timings so most of your performance is coming from the raw increase in speed.

Dual Channel DDR2 @ 1000 (OC'd 800) I believe it was like 5-5-5-x or something I would have 70+ns..
Tri Channel DDR3 @ 1600 8-8-8-24-1t I get 30ns response times @ 18,000MBs reads. (Had to loosen due to not being stable at 1.64v)
Tri Channel DDR3 @ 1600 9-9-9-24-1t I get 32ns response times @ 17,500MBs reads, with 2000 you should see even higher.
