Can I use a Prolimatech Megahalems Rev. C? Or should I go with a liquid cooler?

you can only use a air cooler if you keep it at stock spec but if you overclock it you need liquid cooling.

Megalahelms should handle it if your case airflow is good. You got the right idea. You need one of the huge air coolers or dual rad.

Definitely. When you turn off all the C&Q and Turbo is when things start to get hairy.

it would be doubt full that it could handle anymore than 4.8ghz but honestly those 200mhz to 5ghz is not much of a real world performance increase for most users.

you can turn off the turbo and set the cpu multiplier to the turbo 4.7ghz along with setting the vcore to the to the turbo supplied vcore.
disable c6 unless your windows is on a solid state drive then it becomes less of an issue or Windows on one hard drive and the page file on another and some people say having apps and games installed on a solid state with Windows on a hard drive will give you good performance.
C&Q will tone down your cpu multiplier and voltage for when c6 is disabled.
