  • I think it's possible by creating a Calculated Field that will be set to 'true' if count of list items in the list is more than 70% (like 3000 for the 5000 threshold). 

    You could then create your own .NET application using CSOM, run it once per day, check the value of the calculated field and archive list items whenever you want. If you need that type of customisation I would suggest to look at app that designed to archive list items and attachments without any development required. Disclaimer: I'm an author of a tool and would be glad to answer any questions.
