Question Cores or GHz

Hello,
I am currently making a decent income from running Minecraft bots.
I'm currently running 18 Minecraft bots, and my CPU is often hitting 100% utilization.
I have 64GB RAM, which has only ~50-60% utilization.
I am using Ryzen 7 2700X which has 8 cores and a core clock speed of 3.7 GHz.

My question is, what would be more beneficial for running multiple instances of Minecraft, number of cores or higher clock speed?

I plan on upgrading my CPU, adding 64 more GB ram, and upgrading to a motherboard that supports 128 GB of RAM, in order to run more bots, seeing as each bot generates me ~$24.5 every day (before taxes).
Any CPU recommendations? (I prefer AMD over Intel).

Would you recommend water cooling my new CPU?
My current CPU runs at an average of 54°C, and peaks at 57°C.

Thanks for taking time to read my thread :)

Number of cores but that CPU should hit 4.2GHz on single core loads.

I guess it depends, I was playing with a Xeon on my x99 board, its 12cores 24 threads, base clock is 2.5ghz if I remember right, single core at 3.5, its been a while. My 5820k 6 core 12 thread CPU at stock performed better in nearly everything other than something like video editing.
