Your looking good everywhere!

Yes, I think it should be fairly easy for you to hit 4GHz!
Just increase your FSB by 10 to 15 MHz at a time, without increasing any voltage's.

Once you get a blue screen, or a no boot, then up the Vcore by .02v and retry to boot, it it wont boot, then go up ,02v more.

Your pretty low right now, so you have room.
If you see that your needing more than 1.325v
then check back, and tell us where your at!

Hold on for a minute!

Edit:
You will also need to keep your memory in check, meaning, you need to keep it at or below 800MHz

You can do this by using the bios, and the built in dividers.
So before you start to raise the FSB, you'll need to lower the memory frequency, using the dividers.

Because when you raise the FSB, you also are raising the memory frequency!

I just made an edit about that, please refresh this page, and see my Edit! Thanks!

But to answer you question, you'll want to keep your memory at or below 800MHz

840MHz may work, but for stability reasons, try to keep it at or below what it's rated for!

It may work just fine, up to a point, but it may also cause freezing, BSOD, errors....

So in you bios, there will be a setting to lower your memory frequency to 667, or something close to that. Thats where you want to be, before you start to raise the FSB to get to 4GHz!

Cause on your way up to 4GHz, your memory frequency will also be raising back to 800MHz!
