Let's just make it simple. The goal is overclock both the CPU and the RAM to their max stable levels.
You get to a particular overclock by adjusting HTT, CPU multi, LDT multi and RAM divider (plus vcore, vdimm etc for stability). There is typically always a combination of these settings that will allow for both the CPU and the RAM to run at there max, or very close to it, so to say one or the other isn't really necessary, although if one was forced to bend, I would say sacrifice RAM speed before CPU speed.
As for HTT again, this is really just a means to getting to CPU and RAM speed, not something you are trying to overclock on its own, so it is out of the equation of 'is it better to have higher HTT than_____.....'
Do you have a real world example of what you are trying to do that would make this all make more sense.
