Don't forget that 3770S supports VT-d (Direct I/O for Virtualization) while 3770K doesn't. So if you will be running virtual machines with supported software, 3770S would run much faster.

Is it possible to overclock i7-3770K to 4.8-5.0 GHz?
My current i7-2600K works on 5.0 GHz with a voltage of 1.512 & 62-(max)84 Celsius
But I couldn't overclock i7-3770K over 4.6 GHz.

Ivy Bridge doesn't like core voltages over 1.28 volts (normally). Some folks have removed the IHS, and replaced the thermal paste to improve heat transfer from the CPU die to the IHS. But this is risky.
