My CPU (Xeon E5 1650v3) is at 70 Celsius at full load which I think is fine, but I noticed that it is not reaching the max turbo speed of 3.6GHz, and instead is staying at 3.5GHz. What is the issue here?

Base frequency is 3.5GHz, max turbo is 3.8GHz. So you'll only get 3.8GHz at 1-2core, 3.7 at 3-4, 3.6 at 5-6.
That's assuming that you have turbo enabled, and aren't running in eco mode etc. I'd check your bios settings.
