It's certainly possible, but it doesn't happen too often even on water.

If you can find it:

If not, get this and lap it:

Yes, the copper version performs better.

From what I've heard the TRUE Copper is a decrease of 4-7C. In your case, this is significant.

You'll have a good chance of hitting 4GHz on air if you get an E0. If you get one of the older steppings, it will be a challenge, and you'll need some skills.

TRUE + a high static pressure fan would be your best bet like Cabbs said.
