As far as I know, Windows Home Premium won't recognize over 16.

So you've wasted 8.

You may as well remove the two 4 GB sticks, leaving you with 16---all you can use.

If your specs are correct, which is anybody's guess. I have no idea what you mean by "when i go to system it has dell under manufacture", unless you mean that this is a Dell motherboard, but the PC was built at home, not by Dell.

If it is a Dell motherboard, you will have trouble overclocking it-----regardless of whether or not you built it at home.
its not a dell moab its a this http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Down load from our Software and free program section a program called CPU-Z. This will be helpful in showing the system current speeds.

How did you go about getting it to 4.0 GHz? What steps did you take?

Are you monitoring your temps before and after? Have you run any stress test like Prime? Also what cpu cooler are you running?

When you have CPU-Z open, does your CPU ever throttle down to like 800MHz when it's idling, and then go up to 4000MHz when you are doing something? If it stays at at constant 4GHz, we need to address that first.
