Based on my experience, definitely.
3520MHz 14-14-14-28-56-177ns (tCL-tRCDR/W-tRP-tRAS-tRC-tRFC) stands no chance against fully tuned 3200MHz 12-12-12-26-54-140ns (tCL-tRCDR/W-tRP-tRAS-tRC-tRFC) settings, everything else being equal.

DFICLK (Data Fabric). The fabric that connects the CCXs, memory controller and other blocks within the die together. It's frequency is tied to the MEMCLK (1:2 rate).
