Use coretemp or Realtemp to check your load temps. If under 60-65, you can probably add some volts (up to a max of 1.4V) and push your OC a bit more.

Or, you can leave your OC alone, and try lowering your vCore. Lower a notch, run OCCT for 2 hours. If it passes, lower another notch.

Honestly though, you're at 4.0Ghz. That's a decent OC for that chip. What will 4.1 do for you? Unless you're doing Superpi or other benchmarks, you won't notice the difference.

OK, then use option 1 above. Just watch your load temps. If you're at 37 on idle, you may be around 50 at load, based on my system anyway.

Good luck!

I would definitely try for more. Intel's spec sheet for E8400 (identical to the E3110 as far as I know) says anything higher than 1.45V will cause damage to the processor. Of course, there are people who say less can do it, and people who've run 1.5V and seem to not have any degradation, so be careful with the voltage. I personally would go to a max of 1.45V, but thats just me. I'd start by tightening the RAM timings to 5-5-5-15 (unless that is the limiting factor in the overclock). Then I would up the voltage a little and see how far the chip can get with 1.4V and safe temperatures.
