I have the exact same CPU and board as you. All the settings can be found in the MIT section of the bios. I simply raised the CPU multiplier to x19 (3800mhz), the CPU -NB Multi to x13 (2600mhz) and then bumped the CPU-NB voltage to 1.225v and lowered the CPU voltage to 1.35v, only because my board gives me .05v higher then what I set.

I use hwmonitor and under load it shows CPU Voltage at 1.4v when I have it set at 1.35v. It really might depend on each individual board and cpu. To get it to 4.0, you raise the cpu multiplier to x20. Then you will probably have to bump the voltage up. If you start at 1.5v and work down until its not stable anymore you might get 4.0 stable, but once again each setup overclocks differently.

My Settings
For 3.8
CPU Multiplier: x19
CPU Frequency: 200
CPU Northbridge Frequency: x13
HT Link Frequency: x10
CPU Voltage: -0.05V
CPU-NB Voltage: +0.125V


My Settings
For 4.0
CPU Multiplier: x20
CPU Frequency: 200
CPU Northbridge Frequency: x13
HT Link Frequency: x10
CPU Voltage: Normal

Oh by the way is your CPU a Black Edition? If not I'll change what I've said.
CPU-NB Voltage: +0.125V
