if you double your speed (800MHz to1600MHz) but half your CL (CL 6 to CL 12 [half speed is a number twice as big]) your RAM is going to retrieve twice information at half the speed.
The advantage to a higher MHz is that as your MHz goes up, you also get more bandwidth, but if your CL is higher also, your ram will not be faster.
