I7 OC Specific System Specs Help

Hello everyone, I would just like to ask if it is possible to overclock an I7 920 to roughly 3.8-4.0 GHz based on this setup:

CPU: Intel I7 920
CPU Cooling:Thermalright Ultra 120 eXtreme 1366 RT CPU Cooler Rev B w/ 120mm Fan
Motherboard: eVGA X58 SLI Classified
RAM:Corsair 6GB DOMINATOR PC3-12800 Triple Channel DDR3
GPU: eVGA e-GeForce GTX 295 CO-OP SC
PSU:Corsair HX 1000W (for possible future SLI configurations)

Now I have searched up threads saying the evga x58 classified is mainly for extreme ocing but I would like to push this system as far as it can go on air. If anyone could help me out with this it would be much appreciated. Any suggestions on additional cooling needed to reach that high would be appreciated as well.


Thanks.
