There is no definitive way to answer that. No two chips overclock the same, no two systems overclock the same. But saying that, and reviewing a few posts from Google (sometimes it pays to research), I'm going to say not a chance. Most everyone OC'ing that chip says you have to bump the voltages up to even get to 3.8-3.9. The only real way to know what you'll get out of your rig would be to slowly overclock it until you reach your max at stock then go from there.
Curious though - why 4Ghz and why at stock voltages? As long as your voltages and temps don't go to high and you have good cooling there shouldn't be a reason not to bump them up a little.

mobo has crappy VRM cooling on the board: MSI Global â€“ Mainboard - 880GMS-E35
that would be my guess as to why concerned, but as you said, as long as they monitor temps and it doesn't get too high, might be able to bump the voltage a bit more over stock with out too much worries.
Or buy some aftermarket VRM heatsinks and install them, see if it will help with cooling and stability?i7 940//Corsair H60//EVGA X58 SLI LE//6GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz//2x EVGA GTX 560 Ti FPB SLI//NZXT Hale82 850W//CM 690 II Advanced//Win7 64//WD 74GB V-raptor, 750GB Black, 1.5TB Green
