Try 1.375v and try 1.4v when you start getting to around 4ghz, and always be sure to watch your temps.
I have never gotten it to even post at 4 Ghz, I always get the motherboard OC warning.
Another thing I get often when playing with the setting is that instead of the BIOS going to "loading operating system", it instead goes to a step where it says "begin writing BIOS image" and backs up the BIOS. Then it just reboots.
That said, I finally got it to run at 14x270 last night for 14 hours of Prime95. I had to bump up a lot of voltages, not just the CPU and CPU NB, in order to do so.
Otherwise it would either not post or Prime95 would stop within a minute or 2. Or I would get BSODs.
Unfortunately, the max core temp during that run was 67°C. I know that's above the recommended 62°C. I am surprised it was stable. What temp should I be aiming for ?
Here are the screenshots of my working BIOS 14x270 settings.
