It required 1.4V to get your CPU stable at 4GHz? Sounds like a pretty unlucky chip it it needed that much. You should lower it until your overclock becomes unstable. Try using a FSB of 200.00, make sure you adjust the CPU Multiplier and Memory Clock, and I do strongly recommend doing these in the BIOS. Are your RAM sticks rated at 1.7v or 1.5v?

You should run a stress testing software such as Prime95 or IntelBurnTest and use Realtemp 95 for CPU temperature monitoring.

I'd keep it under 80°C for benching. and under 75°C for 24/7 normal use.

The reason why I'd generally go for a 200.00 MHz FSB is because it gives a even number for the clocks, it allows you to go to 1600MHz and give a better number such as 3.9 GHz/4 GHz

Also set your QPI Frequency to lowest if possible.

Use a LLC of medium if you have the option, enable C-States and EIST, use a power mode of "Balanced" in windows power settings.
