seems unlikely, even if its bdie. unless you're a memory OC master, which very few are. Shart's 10x more complicated than playing with VCCIO. unlike CPUs, where you can get away with bumping core, and volts for an OK tier stable OC. Memory simply doesn't play that way. Thus why XMP even ever became a thing in the first place.
Add me on Steam, same name
R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
Complicated yet simple answer. Yes you can. Can any kit do it? No.
Can any B-die do it? Probably. It's a total luck of the draw.
Then again, to be honest, 3200CL14 is not exactly hard to achieve even on mediocre Hynix chips. I haven't had any kit that can't do CL14. Secondary timings might have to be loose like 14-17-17-35-500-1T but it will work if the lottery is kind to you.

I want to know if its possible to takes 3200Mhz CL16 to 3200Mhz CL14 ? By Im guessing upping the voltage to 1.45 or something... Thanks a bunch!
I suppose it depends on the quality of the die you've got and what options you've got in the BIOS to tinker with! - Example, I'm starting to test some Crucial Ballistix 3600 Mhz rated @ 16_18_18_xx - (I think)_but I've managed to get it to boot up @ 15_16_16_xx (@_14_16_16_xx_there was no boot)__
15_15_15_xx was also attempted but did not boot (maybe more v-dim_it might)_or_a higher "final number" which I forget the parameter name because I'm not an OC master! so currently 16_18_18_xx_ has become 15_16_16_xx __subject to testing!
@_3866_on the Z170 Pro Gaming i7 there was boot @ 17_18_18 albeit with 660 clocks which may reduce a little____this did survive P95_29.4 for 32 minutes as a "will-it-won't-it" type of test !
So it depends on the RAM and the bios of the board - Have a go and change the primary timings.
Looking at the G-Skill website for the 3200 Mhz DDR4 Trident-Z - the 16_18_18 maybe a Hynix die ??? (I'm not sure but you need to test this out)_to see where the limit is, then you'll know
