Do RAM speeds affect loading times?

Ok say you have an infinitely fast SSD and CPU. Would the speed of the RAM change how quickly a video game loaded?

Real world I KNOW RAM has a negligible effect on FPS but would my game load faster if I had say 2200Mhz ram instead of 1333. I know a disc drive to SSD would be a bigger difference. But would a change in RAM speed have ANY difference?

Also what if I'm doing things like rendering RAM previews in Adobe After Effects does faster ram yield quicker previews?(if the rendering is light)

Depends on your Motherboard and CPU.

For example: Intel's Sandy Bridge has a maximum RAM speed of 1333 MHz. Other speeds are not supported by the system.
