I think I may try a 5.0 next to see how that goes.

Forgot to update here.

I didn't like how high the voltage needed to be for a 5.0, so I'm at a 4.9 right now that seems to be stable. I'm not near my PC at the moment and don't remember the actual numbers.

As for the fans, they sure make a difference.
I ran a test twice:
I ran my 4.8GHz overclock for 12 hours with the solid side panel, and then with the fan side panel.
On the solid side panel, my max temp was 85*C.
On the fan side panel, my max temp was 71*C.

That's a helluva difference!

Just an update.

I've decided to stick with my 4.8GHz, running a 140% overclocked iGPU.

I upgraded my case from the LX to a GX2. (The GX2 looks like this, except mine is black.)
I will have pics of that soon.
My reason for changing the case is simple. The LX had 1 intake fan in the front, while the GX2 has 2 of them.
I now have a total of 4 intake fans, but only one exhaust. I will hopefully be cutting a hole in the top of my case for another exhaust fan. It should help with getting hot air out of there quite nicely.

I also finally replaced my 2TB that died.
2x 1TB Seagate Barricuda's in RAID 1, and another 1TB to use as an external.

Next upgrade will be a GTX 680 or two.

edit-
Forgot the link of the new case.

Again, mine is black.

coretemp1.0rc3 100 load 30min at ambient 88f =31c
