No, never max anything out. Bump up the OC to what ever your goal is. I.e. 4.7 or 5.0. (You can jump to what ever the max is you want to hit, but I recommend going one step at a time and getting each step stable before going to the next oc level.) Then run a stability test. If it fails, then bump up the voltage another step. I.E. from 1.35 to 1.36. Repeat until 1 of 3 things happens.
1. You hit a stable voltage with good temps.
2. Temps are too high
3. It is not stable no matter what your voltage is.

those temps are pretty good too you could oc to 4.7Ghz and call it a day there's no way you need more than that unless you do heavy work.
Right, you want it as cool as possible. Just saying 90 or above is where you do not want to be. Personally, I do not like anything above 45. If it runs at 80 or so at max load, it will not be that hot hardly at all while running normal every day stuff.
