We tried 4.4 GHz today and it got quite a bit warmer, also didn't see a major difference in benchmarks. I was going to try 4.6 GHz but he didn't want to.

But I can see his point. We probably wouldn't have gained too much more performance to be worth the added heat. We could have set the Antec to run faster fan speeds but he likes his rig silent.... and I can't believe how quiet it is!!! The fans on those Titans don't get too excited under load. We saw their temps top out at 80*C. Impressive.
It must be the compartmental design of the Thermaltake Level 10
Just to clarify,..the 70c cpu temp,and the 80c gpu temps,were when we ran benchmarks. During heavy gaming,the cpu temps hit a max of about 62c,and the Titans hit a max of about 70c. For a case with very limited air flow,it's the most quiet I've ever had.
