not bad for air cooling @ 11 years old and not delided

1.22v passed all tests like prime 95 small ffts/ real bench / cinbench but threw whea error from bf5 .
1.23 v passes everything

should i buy a z-390 16 phase baord like the asus apex z390 and sell my x hero z370 ?
for this cpu or should i just stay @ 5.0 and maybe do 5.1 and save 500$ ?

That´s ironic, isn´t it?

For more than 5,0 GHz an aio cooler like the new version of arctic liquid freezer + augmented VRM cooling would bee a better choice imho.

But: Power consumption would go far above sweet spot, performace/Watt would worsen too much if you go futher with oc.
