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.
Well some good news, appears Bittrex has opened up new user accounts for corporate customers and select invitees.
You going to cash in..
I'm not a corporate customer and I haven't been invited so I doubt I'm on the list.
Found this on Bittrex Tweets,.. For all those interested in a new account at Bittrex, please use this waitlist form. https://t.co/hdH2ruviPU?amp=1

I did the back probe a while ago on the 12 volt sata connector and it read fine so it may be another problem, I wonder is it possible the bios got wanky because if I bump the memory up to 1600 mhz (which it is rated at ) or xmp profile it also won't boot, goes into boot loop.
It's the +3.3v and +5v of power you want to check,.. first test pin-8 on the 24-pin ATX connector. If not within range,.. the system never sees the Power_Good signal and therefore does not start or run properly.
Intel indicated the decision to eliminate Kaby Lake compatibility with Z370 was due, at least in part, to requests from motherboard vendors that the company make a "clean split."
For motherboard vendors, this removes the burden of adding support for Kaby Lake (and requisite validation) during a time when most motherboard vendors are already stretched to their engineering resource limits due to rapid fire Intel and AMD launches.
Rumor is Intel will have Z390 motherboards coming out in 2018,.. that support enhanced IA and memory overclocking, Thunderbolt 3.0 w/ DP 1.4,.. and perhaps eight-core processors.
