Have same CPU but different mobo a GA-970A-UD3. All i had to do to get my CPU to 4.9 is raise the multiplier to 22.5 and raise the CPU volt to 1.52. Idles at 22-30 and the highest temp i have gotten while in a game (BF3 karkand 64 player conquest) was 55. On a benchmark where the CPU is stressed at 100% i get to 65, but like i said, unless is a stress tool it never gets that high. At 4.0 you shouln't be getting 75c. Though I don't know how the default cpu fan performs ( have a cooler master n520) i have read reviews that the stock cpu cooler does a good job. To whoever has the 4.0 @75c I suggest you check the thermalpaste and if the CPU cooler is seated well.
