Will raise DDR3 or DDR3L memory speed up to maximum limit shorten its lifetime ?
If the memory age is 5 years old since the fabrication with normal and good usage over time till now and is to be set up to 1600 MHz max speed limit, how many more years it'll last in the future ?

I would expect some marginal reduction in expected lifespan. To run the RAM faster means switching it faster which requires more current and therefore more heat to be dissipated. But as long as you don't try to exceed the design limits any such reduction should be marginal. In any case, RAM sticks are not normally the first thng to fail in a computer !
