well, Im quite happy with 4ghz and i also just overclocked my video card. all is well in kombuster and prime95. i will get that h70 installed and bump up my OC later. I am also planning on buying more RAM. I was going to buy another 6GB of GSkill which is in my sig. Any 'cheaper' better alternative would by great to hear about

You should stress test a little more than 20 minutes in prime95 to tell if you OC is stable. If your temps are high, don't push it til you get the h70. IntelBurnTest is a nice linpack test to high temps, OCCT isn't bad too, and I've had a OC that could pass 12 hours of prime95, only to have it fail 1 hour of OCCT.

Also, with the RAM, you may want to stick w/ the same model ones you have. If you don't, at least get ram w/ the same speed/timing. I've had issues in the past using different brand ram w/ different clock/timings, even though I would set them to run the same in the BIOS.

have to agree with anubis here, it's hard to claim absolute stability, but 20mins of prime isn't near enough, if you don't mind waiting for 24hrs of p95, then use it. but intel burn test is a much quicker way to test cpu stability. 20 runs on max stress without freeze/crash/bsod, should see you through normal use and game no problem, at least it hasn't failed me yet. if you fold and never turn off your pc, might wanna run 50+ runs...

yup, get the same rams, you might find cheaper rams around, but those are the few bucks you don't wanna cheap out on and risk compatibility/stability

also...
1. what ram speed are you running now with your 4ghz overclock?
2. what's your cpu temp underload? with ht or not?
3. what vcore?
4. what qpi?

vcore and qpi can be lowered to help temps, but means more testing, if you can't be bothered at this stage, you can wait and tweak the voltages when your h70 arrives as long as your temps with the v6 is not rocket high at the moment

i ran p95 from the time of my last post until now. No problems at all. I plan on running it for a full day when i can sleep somewhere that isnt near my computer. its a little loud

Nice, sounds like you have found some stability.

BTW, my electricity bill hates me when I'm stress testing, lol.
