Overclocking RAM on a locked CPU

My set up in the process of being made is here:


With a locked CPU, can I still overclock my RAM to 3200? If I can, what risks am I taking and is it worth it?

I am wanting to create games and mini movies with Unreal Engine 4 and I will be adding another 16gb of RAM later if I find it necessary. This is my first rig, so all help is appreciated!

    Why is that? Is there something about a locked cpu that limits memory speed? I can run my 3200mhz CL15 ram just fine with a 7700k at stock clocks.
