Watercooled overclocking 9700k results and questions:

Intel 9700k
Asrock z390 Taichi
Gskill 16G 3200 C14
2*240 30mm radiator only for CPU, with DDC pump
MSI GTX1070ti

I overclocked 9700k to 5.3Ghz, Vcore 1.47v, ring 43X, avx offset=0, no memory overclocking, FPU 10mins passed.
But no matter what I try increase the vcore (1.5v-1.6v), it still cannot get 5.4Ghz passed through AIDA64 FPU.
The common sense of overclocking is simple, balancing the vcore and temperature, however the practice is not easy. Because of the system crash immediately, I am doubting the CPU temperature is not getting high as TJmax so I believe the watercooling system still can hold the heat. If the only thing I care about is the CPU frequency, to get 5.4Ghz, what should I do next?

Do I have to do these things?
1. Change memory settings, lower the dram voltage, the frequency, the timing.
2. Increase the VCCIO or VCCSA voltage.
3. Delid 9700k and add more radiators and increase more vcore voltage beyond 1.6v.

IMO you really shouldn't be pushing over 1.4v if you need to ask any of those questions but it's not mine so go for it.
The OC method doesn't really change much over the generations. Make your ram and cache run stock speeds with a fixed, stable voltage. Enable your board to output full current. Pick the core speed you want and bump vcore (manual) till it's 100% stable at the speed you want. Then you OC your ram till it's 100% stable. Then you OC your cache till it's 100% stable. Then you enable adaptive voltage.

A much more detailed process is in this guide as well as what all the voaltages do:
