Each processor is different. Grab Prime95 or some other burn in test software of your choice, increase your multiplier so you go up 100Mhz a jump, run your software for 15 minutes or so to make sure it's fairly stable until you get to 4Ghz. If it's still stable then run it like that for a while as you normally would use it and see if you have any issues.

And try to get it stable on as low a voltage as possible, this will keep temps under control,
may help as well, theres plenty of guides out there
