I found 7-7-7-24 1600mhz mushkin ram for the same price and capacity as 10-12-12-31 2400mhz gskill ram.
Can I underclock the 2400mhz ram to have better latency 7-7-7-24? I know it will use less power and run cooler which is even better, and my cpu only supports 1600mhz or less.

Most likely yes. Either that mushkin RAM you found is very overpriced or the g.skill is on a great discount, you should be able to find 1600 CAS7 RAM alot cheaper than those 2400mhz sticks.
