    You'd probably need two things and a bit of luck. For starters, you might need to go with a custom cooling loop over a CLC cooler. 5.3 is gonna generate a lot of heat. Second, you will HAVE to buy a delid kit for the Kaby Lake chips and replace the factory thermal compound Intel uses with some liquid metal. Of course there is some risk to that, but the kits have done a pretty awesome job of delidding the Intel chips as safely as possible. Finally, 5.3 GHz is pretty high so it may come down to binning, but I think it's a pretty reasonable goal all considering. No matter what, look into delidding if you want anything over 5 GHz.
