I have an 970 BE and did not Push it yet, I need to get the basics of overclocking and a new CPU cooler. But my temps with stock cooler:

Idle: 39-31 (Celsius)
Load: 54-55 (Celsius)

Hope it helps a bit.

I have a Phenom II x4 970 BE Overclocked to 3.8GHz @ 1.455v (200x19) CPU-NB to 2600 @ 1.25v on my Asus Crosshair IV Formula using a Corsair H70 cooler with a pair of Scythe S-Flex SFF21G in Push/Pull exhausting out the back of the case.

With this setup I'm getting about 31-32c @ idle with an ambient room temp of 23.5-24c, and around 52-54c @ 100% Load in Prime95. This is in my current case which is an Antec 900.

I've tried getting it to 4GHz, but was pushing upwards of 1.475v-1.5v and it was only partially stable and would crash in Prime95 after a couple min.

I wasn't really willing to push the voltage higher to get it fully stable. So I've left it at 3.8GHz for now. I'm sure once I get my HAF X and Radeon HD 6970 2GB I ordered I will mess with it a little more.
