Are you overclocking your GPU ?
I couldn't get my HD4000 above 1600Mhz either, no matter how much voltage I shoved at it LOL
So you got it to 1600Mhz then?

I wish there were more CPU+GPU water cooled AIO solutions that weren't utterly massive or uber expensive.
I personally wouldn't bother with passive rads. You need hell of a lot of surface area to pull it off.
Room ambient temps are crucial as well.
In my honest opinion, a low FPI rad or two with low
speed fans would be more worth it.
