I believe you can. If you're adventurous, you can push the bclk a bit for a little more performance.

If it is a K series CPU you can go above 4.2Ghz+ with a decent cooler.

Yes, it is possible. I have the VI Hero with a 4770k and got it to run full speed all the time, but I don't keep it like that. (It is done by disabling Intel's speedstep in the BIOS)

As long as you keep the temps low enough, yes. http://www.intel.com/support/processors/corei7/sb/CS-032279.htm?wapkw=4770

Buying an ROG motherboard for a locked CPU is such a waste. Yes, you can overclock via Bclk and disable speedstep, but if you're going to spend the money on high quality components, you might as well spend a bit more on an unlocked processor.

If you enable xmp it sets the cpu to 3.9GHz when all cores are at full load
