Well, I decided to go out and buy a new computer from Best buy, because for a prebuilt, it had a great price. It is an Asus tower, with a 1TB 7200RPM hard disk, 16GB of ram (2*8), a Gt 630, and most importantly, the I7 3770, for only $700. (Unopened, and came with keyboard, mouse, and screen.) anyway, since Ive never overclocked a locked CPU before, I am looking to the community for answers. It can reach 3.9GHZ with turbo boost, so why not 4GHZ without adjusting any voltage?

... you listed everything but the IMPORTANT part, which is your motherboard. What chipset are you using?

Post much? (and you can post links.)

The issue is you have a 3770 and not a 3770k. In Intels modern CPUs all the buses are linked. So you can't raise one without raising them all. And that will cause your other parts to not work. So you can't OC that CPU much at all.
