I overclocked my cpu to 4.8GHz with the voltage set to 1.41v using stock cooling but my temps show 10C-15C on idle and i know this is not right as in the bios on startup it shows about 26C, but what i want to know is what my temp most likely is on idle and as ive seen people saying you shouldn't overclock on stock cooling i was wondering if i should get a better cooler?. also i would like to know if its safe to up the voltage a bit to try and get 5GHz as on 4900 it just BSODs while booting. cheers.

When overclocking always get an aftermarket cooler, what are you using to monitor your temps?
core temp and open hardware monitor, both show the exact same temps.
