3.8 is the all core turbo boost for that chip.

4.0 is a the Intel turbo 3.0 which will often only mean 1 core will likely achieve 4.0GHz under the right conditions. Your CPU is behaving normally.

Also this would be referred to as Boost/Turbo, and isn't technically overclocking.

so is there a way i can get my cpu to 4ghz on all my cores?
You'd have to manually overclock it. Which of course comes with its own precautions and you'll want to do pletty on research before jumping into it. There are plenty of guides on overclocking CPUs on this forum.

You'll have to make sure you have a motherboard that allows you to overclock and a cooler than can also handle it.
