I ran prime 95 for 30 minutes and the stayed below 65C so I think i'm alright. is 4.0GHz enough for gaming or should I go higher?

yes, you are alright :) 
You dont really need to OC to play games as games rely on your graphics card... but if want to overclock, go ahead...

Stop overclocking when your CPU temps on load are above 75C
