Overclocking problem Core 2 Quad q9650?

I overclocked my Core 2 Quad 9650 from 3GHz to 3.5GHz. I ran prime95 on it and after it hit the second test, the temp maxed out at 70c and I quit it because that's the 'no no' temp for my CPU. I have a full copper heatsink from Zalman, what should I do? Up my voltage, or upgrade my heatsink?
