2x512 will run just fine at 1T

Adding another stick should increase performance as it will now be 128 bit dual channel 'interleaved' rather than 64 bit single channel, assuming you can leave it at 1T which you should, it is only 4 sticks that need 2T and 3 sticks is reccomended 2T IMO.

EDIT/// You can run 4 sticks at 1T as well but it will hurt your maximum overclock but I'd take a lower overclock with 1T personally.
