8700k@5ghz temps are higher than I am looking for?

Hello everyone, I have a question for you guys. This is the first time I have overclocked, and I think I am running into an issue. Here are my specs:

 

I7-8700k @ 5ghz 24/7, 1.4v

Fractal Design S36 AIO

Asus Maximus Hero Wifi Z390

Corsair 4x8gb 3200

2x1tb nvme drives

Asus rtx 2080ti

650w corsair PSU

 

I can get 5ghz on all cores but only when I run 1.4v in the bios, but HWMonitor is showing a max of 1.42. I would like to get that down because my temps when gaming are hitting mid 70's. I have already did a delid with conductonaut liquid metal on the die/IHS and on the IHS/AIO. If I can get some screenshots of the BIOS settings I have, I can post them if that helps any. I followed this overclocking guide on youtube and I believe it hits roughly the right spots: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bD1Ze80GpLo

 

If I lower the voltage below 1.38v, it boots to the login screen then BSOD's. Is there anything I can do or have I lost the silicone lottery that badly?

Does that produce some kind of problem?

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

No, but I was under the assumption that it would have lower heat output with the delid and liquid metal. My main concern is 1.4v, I know that causes a lot more heat.

At 1.4 volts your temps are not surprising. They are also completely reasonable temps for 24/7 operation.
