Can i overclock without raising my ram frequency?

Hey hi guys, its me again, sorry to bother with my dumb questions :(
Well i just want to know if i can overclock my i7 920 D0 to 3.8 Ghz... I have a cooler master v8 and my temps in idle are 38C-41C, my highest temps when im playing pcsx2 are only like 55C Max, i have a Gigabyte UD3R motherboard and im running my i7 with 1.13V, whats the risk if i overclock to 3.8? can i overclock without raising my ram frequency? can i overclock my i7 to 4.0 ghz with this motherboard and coolermaster? my nvidia geforce9400gt 1 gb got really hot when i overclocked from 2.6 to 3.4, it'll get hotter if i overclock to 3.8? my chipset wont burn if i go too far with overclock?

    What is your RAM rated at ? Mem Multiplier goes from 6-14. If you change BCLK, and dont chnage memory multiplier, memory gets OC's automatically

    Base Clock / Memory Multiplier / RAM Speed / CPU Multiplier / CPU Speed
    133.33 / 8 / 1066 / 20 / 2.66
    150 / 8 / 1200 / 20 / 3.00
    166 / 8 / 1336 / 20 / 3.33
    180 / 8 / 1440 / 20 / 3.60
    190 / 8 / 1520 / 20 / 3.80
    200 / 8 / 1600 / 20 / 4.00

    That's why you will see most peeps buying DDR 1600 as it allows them to reach that magical 4 Ghz spot. With lower rated RAM

    177 / 6/ 1062 / 20 / 3.54
    190 / 6 / 1140 / 20 / 3.80
    200 / 6 / 1200 / 20 / 4.00

    Do you think i can reach 4 ghz with a v8? im running prime95 large fft and my highest temp is 66C and 38C-41C idle
    My graphic card will get hotter if i Overclock it to 4.0 Ghz?
    I wanna overclock it to 4.0 Ghz for now since my room temp is cold, and ill put it back to 3.4 ghz when the temps start getting hot
