Overclocking 7700K - Where to begin?

Intel CPUs | Overclockers Forums - www.overclockers.com
So I built this system and want to do a general use basic overclock, I have extensive computer experience but have never overclocked before

CPU: Intel Core i7 7700K

Motherboard: ASUS Strix Z270E

RAM: 16GB G. Skill Trident Z 3000MHz (8GBx2)

Cooler: Corsair H100iv2

GPU: EVGA GTX1080 SC

SSD: Samsung 960Evo Pro m.2 500GB

HDD: Seagate Barracuda Pro 6TB

PSU: EVGA G3 Supernova 650W

Case: NZXT S340 Elite

I used the Asus EZ tuner which gives me these values in ROG CPU-Z:

I'm just having a feeling the voltage on that is a bit too high. I ran AIDA64 for an hour (Stress mode) and my average temps were 67-70 C although I saw max temps of around 81-82 C on some cores. My CPU idles at 35 C with that overclock.

Can anyone help please?
