  1. With my experience of overclocking the Intel® Core™ i5-3570K with a Corsair H100 I found that I was having a hard time pushing 4.6GHz without the temperatures reaching a level that was higher then would like on a 24/7 overclock. So short of some very different cooling system I would say that the voltage to reach over 5 would push the temperatures up to a very dangerous level.
  2. Try restarting your computer by shuting it down, and turning the power supply off, then install CPUZ
  3. It is impossible
    there is some error in speed reading
