I doubt ram speed has any influence at that at all. Of course i dont know how zip cracking works. If it can only verify the password after trying to open the whole thing, then yes it impacts a lot.A real example would be brute-force cracking a zipfile locked with a password. Even small differences in speed help a lot.
If its just a verification of a header the impact would be zero.
But my point here rather was personal speaking: My system is as snappy as i need it, any further would be a pointless waste of energy, thus i keep my ram as slow as possible.
