So after building a new PC for someone else, I learned quite a bit about overclocking: speeds, temps, voltages, stress testing/temp-monitoring software etc.
Before I just used the ASUS one-click overclock and left it. Now I manually applied the following overclock with the following hardware.

Hardware
Case: Cubitek Mini Cube (Temporary while I cut holes in my Lian Li PC-TU100)
Motherboard: ASUS Maximus VI Impact
CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K
Cooler: Corsair H75 Liquid Cooler
-Using one Noctua 2000-RPM Industrial Fan

Overclock
Speed: 4.1 GHz
Voltage: 1.1 Volts
Temps: 85 C at full load

I'm new to overclocking and probably a noob, but this is a light overclock with a low voltage for Haswell. I don't know why the temps are so outrageously high.
Any help is appreciated.

OK, I tightened the screws and set the voltage to manual instead of adaptive. Now it's stable around 65 C.

Might also want to consider on your next maintenance reapplying the TIM just to be sure its all good
