The Noctua NH-D14 or the Thermaltake Frio should both be able to handle an i7 @ 4GHz well.

Thermalright Venomous X or HR-02 or Prolimatech Supermega .

The V6 GT is a decent cooler also, not the best but knocks the V8 out.

But honestly, $30-40 coolers can do 4Ghz on an i7, the 212+, Performa, Xigmatek Darknight/HDT are fine choices.

You didn't mention your case so some coolers like the Frio,V6GT,and V8 are 165mm tall and may not fit.
Most others are 160mm or less.
