The Ninja edges out all others for the most part.

4Ghz on air would be quite the accomplishment, but that may be setting your sites a bit high. It can been done, but not very common on the retail chips, ES versions are a different story.

Definitely not a 24/7 OC, but if you get a good chips, and are willing push about 1.6-1.7 vcore through it, you might be able to get there for a nice suicide PI shot
