That cooler ain't that great.

You could, however, try 3.6Ghz @ 1.4v (Or 1.42v)

Don't let the temperatures reach above 54-56ºC on LOAD (Max safe is 62ºC but I wouldn't let it go above 56ºC).

Hyper 212 is a great cooler don't let people tell you otherwise. I would worry more about your chip being a c2. Which is what will hold you back. Most people seem to be getting 3.6-3.8 with 1.45-1.5 volts with a decent air cooler.

.... type it in...

I had a GD70 and I broke it because it sucked. especially without more cooling its going to overheat fairly quickly if you OC it.

It's a great board, actually. (In my experience)

Well i think that's a bit high, even for an C2. My room temp is 21°C and the max i get is 51°C with my fans on 60%. (I don't have a case so that does help a bit)

those temps are already too high.. back it down a bit and get a better cooler before going further

Is Cool'n'Quiet disabled?
Also, run your fans full, see how much of a difference that makes.

What case have you got? I see you're getting a HAF-X soon, it's likely there's not sufficient airflow for the fans to cool properly.
Changing to the case I have now dropped me 10c on the CPU and GPU.
That's a good cooler you have there, but those temps seem high for what you're at, take the side panel off and retest.
I think a remount of the HS may be in order though, how was the TIM applied?
