Lower timings will help performance. I'm not going to bother to explain it because even I don't fully understand it.
You could Google it if you wanted to find out the specifics of how RAM timings work.
Depending on how much your going to lower them, you may need to adjust the voltage. If you going to try about stock speed (800Mhz) with the stock timings, you won't need to change the voltage going to the sticks. If you want to go tighter, then yes, more voltage may be required.
Honestly, if I were you, I would set my RAM voltage at 1.9v anyway, at least. Maybe 2.0v. Again, you should check and see what voltage your RAM is rated for, and set it somewhere in that range. Often people find that 1.8v (stock) to the RAM is not enough, and sometimes causes problems.
