    Overclocking assistance

    Hello everyone,

    Welp been trying to OC my 8700k with Asus z-370 a board and I feel like I have hit a wall. For as much as I try, I am completely stable at 4.7 ghz with vcore at 1.29V. I say "stable" because how stable can you actually be, right? I can go through 3 hours of realbench, 8 hours of prime, Intel burn test and OCCT fine. As soon as I try 4.8 ghz I can get through all the tests with 1.31 vcore but occt fails 10 mins into stress testing. Anyone have any advice or ideas on what and how to try and get that 4.8 w/o pumping much more voltage? I mean if I'm at 1.35-1.37 volts might as well try for 5ghz Haha.

    But seriously, any advice would be great. Running an h100i v2 for cooling with corsair ml140 rgb fans.
