With enchanted multicore performance, I get 4.7 ghz on I7 8700k. That's what I want.
Temps however spike to 80 and also increases GPU temps a bit...
Anything I can do without needing to run stress tests for a lot of hours?

EDIT: 80c is underload!

That's not terrible for being "under load."

If you need to reduce the temps, though, look at your cooling solution. What are you using to cool the cpu as it is?

I think your temps are fine. Not really anything to worry about.

GPU temps also spike up a little, usually around 75 but in rare cases spikes to 80.

Also not a huge problem.

Do you have any case fans? Where is your tower located? How's the airflow to and from the case?
