Listing your hardware and what you've tried would be helpful.
If you follow the guide exactly and still have issues, something is broken or you've hit a thermal wall with that cooler.
You aren't likely to get a great OC with such a bad cooler and a stock 8700k. The best bins went to the 8086k so you aren't likely to get 5th without delidding.
Imo 4.7ghz all core would be a great OC for what you have. I can't stabilize 4.8+ on a 4790k using the same junk cooler.
