Any ideas to get to 4.0 ghz+, atm the vcore is 1.12, bclk is 170. At 1.25 vcore i couldn't get 181 bclk to be stable causing me to raise the vcore again... It cause temps to go to 92 degrees.

Depending on yr other memory settings(on a gigabyte its "System Memory Multiplier" which gets set to 8)this will enable you to hit 1600mhz on the RAM.
Cosmos S - i7 920 DO @ 4Ghz - Gigabyte EX58-UD5
GTX 275 - 6Gb OCZ Gold 1600Mhz
PA120.4 - XSPC DDCBAYTWO - HF Nickel - EK FB

4GB RAM - Are you running 32 bit Windows by any chance (ie XP or Vista or Windows 7 32)? That would explain why you only see 4GB.
2GB RAM - This is suspiciously like a problem I had with my Gigabyte X58 Extreme, and I note you've got a similar motherboard. Mine was faulty and needed replacement.

It hits 65 when doing a bench, it's only when I really try to stress it with LinX that it hits 75 degrees. I did try to get it to 3.8 with 1.25v vcore however it was unstable, I tried with the higher voltage and it was stable but the temps went to 92-95 degrees!
The cooler I am using now is a Titan Fenrir with a stock fan. It apparently was a good air cooler, however my case airflow isn't brilliant. I have a Coolermaster Cosmos, not the S version because I like the door on the 1000. This case was more built for noise abatement rather than airflow. All my case fans are stock coolermaster ones as well.
I really want to get water cooling and will as soon as I can afford it, I have a couple of things to sell on ebay so this should help.
The main concern is getting 6gb of ram though. I've tried everything, I may just take the board back and hopefully get a new one. To be honest I'd like a refund because I wasn't impressed with the over clocking settings on the Asus, I can't change the multipliers.

It really does sound like precisely the same problem I had. The bios would show all the memory and its timings but in Windows I was down to 4GB. CPU-Z could also read the memory but I could not actually use it. It appeared I had a faulty first slot on the motherboard. In the end I lost faith in Gigabyte's motherboard and replaced it with a Foxconn Bloodrage which I've been really happy with so far.

On another note, any idea how i can get the 4.0ghz mark. Is it a case that my case cooling (excuse the pun ) isn't good enough?
Also If I got a refund on a motherboard, which X58 brand boards do you think are the best from an overclocking/reliability point of view.

why will people not learn that asus motherboards are second best to most other manufacturers

everyone goes for asus because they have more market in mobo, their the first to come out with the new sockets for cpu, and so people think they are the best.
of course theirs more to it then that

Obviously later on other manufacturers released better motherboards, and everything is completely different with the second and third generation X58's, but there is no massive roundup showing which is better anymore, so the reviews you can find are either a roundup from a year ago or individual boards. Its no wonder that Asus still sells.

An update however is that I am annoyed with Overclockers UK. I lugged my hugely heavy pc downstairs and into the car, scratching it in the process. When I arrived at OCuk they told me they no longer did computer repairs and that I would have to bring the motherboard back on its own :<. When I asked them if I could borrow a screw driver their reply was... I can't lend you one due to health and safety purposes, we don't have the necessary insurance! So I was left to bring it back. I'm hopefully taking the motherboard in on Wednesday as Asus won't accept it, you need to return it to the reseller.

what you gonna do, kill people with a screw driver in the shop
