best 4 gate variation for PvP?

Protoss Discussion
Hey guys, I'm a new silver league player here and I've been 4 gatting every PvP game with a ton of success. However I feel as though I can still improve and make it faster. Right now I warp in at about 6:10-30 which is pretty bad but at this lower league it doesn't even matter that much. I have heard that 4 gates is still very viable in the higher leagues and would like to know the most efficient and best way to 4 gate in pvp!
ok

(2 chronos on probes, rest on research)
9 pylon
12 gate
14 gas
16 pylon
16-17 cyber (depends when you scouted)
zealot
stalker
@450 min, 3 gates

and make proxy pylon so it finishes when your gates transform
warp in at 5:45-5:50
Unfortunate character name.

This, and you stop making probes at 20. 16 mining minerals and 3 on gas, and 1 making your proxy pylon/scouting (which has to stay alive for the 4 gate to be on time @ 5:45).
And be active with your first zealot/stalker looking for proxy pylons from your opponent, his scouting probe... etc. When the 3 extra gates get plopped down... that's when it's time to rush to his base and get your own proxy pylons up.
i personally like zealot stalker pressure into a 4 gate, if they skip their zealot you have a advantage thats if the map isnt too long.
