I have an i7-3770k processor with a Hyper 212 EVO heatsink. My case is a HAF X 942 from cooler Master, which includes 4 case fans.

Can I OC my CPU with this setup?

I am assuming you have a motherboard which allows overclocking (like the asrock z77 extreme 4)...

The Hyper 212 EVO can allow overclocks till 4.5 GHz... but a lot depends on ambient temperature (room temp, the other parts in the system etc.)...

Personally I think you can push it safely till 4.2 GHz... just be careful with anything beyond 4 - 4.2 GHz

I have a Biostar TZ77B motherboard. I have the CPU OC'd to 4.2 right now and I'm letting it run through prime95 to test it. What temps should I look for on the CPU?

If the temps are below 58c on load its okay. But I think your temps are way lower than that.
