Your board has the same vrm as my Z370-A is actually a 4 phase vrm because the controller only has 4 outputs and no doublers are present in the board. Basically is running a 4 x 2 configuration. With my 8700K @ 5.0Ghz running AVX2 load I hit 180W and the vrm gets REALLY HOT !. So a 9900K at 5.0Ghz with a synthetic load will hit 200w+ easily.
Use my "template" and start slow for example at 47x and then 48x ..... You can set a AVX offset if you can't reach stability at 5.0ghz all cores. Another option is set a few cores to 51 or 52x for CPU bound games like CS:GO
-First load the XMP profile
-SVID Behevior: Best case - this change how aggressive is the boost voltage table
-Cpu Core/cache voltage: Offset + and increase the value in small steps
-cpu core/cache current limit max: 255
-CPU VCCIO: 1.15
-CPU System agent voltage: 1.20
-CPU load line calibration: Level 5 or 6 ... in my experience level 5 is close to the voltage set but depends on the load
-CPU Current capability: 140%
