You need to put that cpu under water to watch it really fly, Reckon 4.6 HT on fully stable.

Noctua NH-D14, paired with Liquid Metal Ultra it is on par and better in some test then the h100, not sure on the h100i, have not seen any comparative tests for it yet.

My NH-C12P SE14 (W/mx-4) was better than my Kulher 620 (stock) After I added 2 NF-F12's and Liquid Ultra the 620 did a lot better. So no matter what you get you can increase performance by changing the tim and fans.

Money wise a Kuhler 620 for $60 and some good tim will be a improvement over a air cooler.

I have bought Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO.

I have changed multiplier to 50 (50 x 100MHz = 5000MHz) and auto voltage (~1.4 V) in BIOS. Good stable?

I'd recommend not doing auto. You could probably get lower temps on your own. I guess you could use 1.4 as a starting point and work down from there. 5Ghz is great though.

I tried manually change to 1.3 V and now or 1 second later... I got freeze with/without BSOD despite idle. Therefore, I keep auto-voltage, ok?

Spire Thermax Eclipse II, should be within your budget and it a beast at cooling.
Running a i5 3570k @ 4.5ghz 24/7 and it hits about 55 while gaming.

Ummm no. Start overclocking slowly from the bottom and set stock voltages. Auto voltage is aggressive and would probably not get you the voltage you need to remain stable.
