Runoff speed should not matter efficiency wise, although a slower rate might make for a clearer runoff.
A few brews ago my spaghetti wheat beer was near stuck...so I just let it run at its own pace of nearly a trickle, resulting in some of the clearest runnings I have ever seen.
Not sure it matters much, as it all seems to settle out regardless.
