It seems this is a pretty poor cooler...
I have the same CPU and managed to have it hit the same temperatures with water, at stock, so for a nice overclock and to be kept within reason is great. You also need to remember that this is pushing towards a good performance/silence ratio.

Trying matching those same temps with that overclock on air or water... while keeping things silent. Not going to happen.
