2400 9-11-11, 10-11-11 or 10-12-12 1.55-1.65V will be about max on newer IC. These modules can work without issues at 1.7V or some more but overclocking won't improve much so there is no point to set high voltage.

Depends on the kit they're not all created equal. I would try with the 2400 10-12-12 at 1.65v and see if it boots then if it does test it for stability

Maybe a bit but not something you will likely notice.
