Keep in mind that latency numbers refer to cycles, which become shorter as you increase the frequency.

So, 800 MHz memory with a CAS latency of 4 has the exact same CAS latency (time-wise) as 1600 MHz memory with a CAS latency of 8. (More or less, CAS latency doesn't really tell you much on its own, and overall latency of memory becomes somewhat technical.)
