Even a test run at 4Ghz would not damage the thermal paste, like DDD said the cpu will shut down before damage occurs.
You should know that the stock cooler comes with the worst thermal paste manufactured. I would strongly suggest ordering some MX-2 and an inexpensive heatsink(like the CM 212+~$25).
Also make sure your case's airflow is decent, add an additional fan if you need.
