What kind of ambient temps are you dealing with?
Let me tell you something that happened with my chip when I went for 4.5GHz, I want to see if you had a similar expirience at any point while testing lower voltages at 4.0GHz.
When I set my voltage to 1.525v, I lasted 50 minutes on a Prime95 Blend, and then I BSOD'd code 124. Every voltage increase beyond that up to 1.55v resulted in a BSOD within 2 minutes when running Prime95 Blend. I went back down to 1.525v and tested it again and it lasted 45 minutes.
I have not stabolized it at 4.5GHz. But, it really seemed weird that I was able to run 45 or 50 minutes, but BSOD so quickly at every voltage increase after that.
Are you overclocking anything else while you are trying to hit 4.0GHz besides your NB?
You lucky duck, no everything else is stock. For the voltage, anything past 1.525 gets me 1 minute bsod in prime or Linpack, no matter the frequency. I think it could be a heat issue, at 1.525 when the linpack starts to unload on the CPU after being loaded in ram, I get an instant 20C jump, putting me at 55C and then I stop it because its climbing like a tard taunted with apple butter. (bad analogy) This is a recent issue, and I cant figure out why its being so stupid now. My face has become sad
