Hi Guys, I am new to overclocking and honestly decided to try it out ! I am attching an screenshot and will sincerely appreciate if I will be okay leaving this overclock for 24/7.

I case the screenshot does not upload, 5.3GHz with max voltage 1.32 , temps around 70c

I7 8086k on rog max x hero and HX750i

That seems like too low of a voltage for the CPU to be able to run 5.3 Ghz stable. Outside of that, most people do not want to run their CPU 24/7 at the absolute maximum overclock it can do. For longevity reasons, you likely want to back it off a little.

Did you stress test it?

Start slow, figure out what helps and what doesn't (both in terms of increased freq and voltage), especially with a program that provides a score. cinebench for short runs, blender/handbrake (without quicksync or whatever its called) for longer ones.
Theres more to stability than just passing x hours of p95, especially once you start oc'ing memory, ring buses, etc. Run various stress tests, mem tests, browse internet while running a stress test, all these things can show a weakness or oversight that you might not catch right away otherwise.
I like y-cruncher as a test program, though by itself is not perfect, none are.
