when will the sound travel faster in solid ice cube or in comparitively at a high temprature, water?

The speed of sound in ice is approximately double the it's speed in water at room temperature.
Increasing the tempreature of water increases the speed, and we can increase the temperature upto boiling point with pressure being atmospheric. But the increase in speed will still be marginal.
We can use some online calculators to find speed of sound in water as a function of tempreature.
