There are some different ways to do it without having access to a Co2 laser cutter, using etching cream, acetone, but tracing over the image using a cordless dremel seems about the easiest way,.. and using LED strips or light tape.
+1,.. once you overclock the hardware, the 2700X chip would most likely be outmatched by the 8700Ks higher clock frequencies.
At standard clocks for gaming, the victor would be Intel's 6-core i7-8700K. For productivity at standard clocks, it goes to AMD's new 8-core R7 2700X (yet can go back to Intel once overclocked, depending on the software).
Your chip is fine running at 65c, and real world stress on a hot day being 78c,.. no need to worry till you reach 90c.
Delid is the way to go if you want better temps,.. delided your chip should do 4.7GHz @ 1.2V around 70-75c under load.
Your motherboard supports Xeon chips,.. the Xeon E3-1286 v3 would be only chip close to your i7-4790K,.. and would run a bit cooler running at default 84W 3.7GHz,.. you would be taking a huge performance hit running lower wattage Xeons,.. so your better off sticking with your i7-4790K.
