And yes, I think you are right. I think I will reduce my frequency, since I'm not aiming for any benchmarks. I just wanted to see if I could hit 4 Ghz :D

As far as extra case fans, the case I'm using right now (Thermaltake Xaser III, oldschool :P) is not too great. It's got seven 80mm fans that don't do much, really...
Yeah, I think you should try out the chill factor thermal paste and see if it does better or worse than the tuniq thermal paste! No need for you to keep the CPU at 4 GHz, around 3.6Ghz is fine! And congrats, you made it to 4GHz! Keep us posted
