Can't OC a i7 8700k on Asus Prime z370-p

So I've currently got everything on stock except for the ram profile...but no matter what video I follow/guide I look at, it won't boot/fails shortly after. I've used the video below as well as other resources and nothing works...any advice? Any solid way to determine what the issue is?

Here are my results at stock using a Coolermaster 212.

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.

Ohh really? People were acting like 5ghz was easy for these.

Here are my results at stock using a Coolermaster 212 running small prime 95 26.6

Newest version of prime 95

Attached is also my intel...for some reason the "powers" tab under CPUID kept fluctuating pretty heavily thus the temp changes in green...any advice?

Do you know why power/temp fluctuates so heavily? My temps are going up/down in 10s...

It is...... However, not when you are using a cooler designed for cooling a Dual Core CPU. Yes, I gather the TDP is close to the same. However that heatsink is just not even close to up to the task of cooling an 8700k. Especially a non delidded one. You could have picked up a 120mm Deepcool AIO for $15 more or less. 5ghz easy with one of those.

Ditch that heatsink ASAP man. You have such nice other hardware, honestly. Don't pair it with a joke for a heatsink man, really.

Oh damn...this one was recommended to me. :\

When it comes to the temps being in the 70-80s and these odd fluctuations... is my PC at risk? Am I screwing up the components right now?

That's also an issue.
You have one of the worst boards and coolers you can get. The board has a 4 phase VRM, consider yourself lucky to run MCE.

Really...? I’m honestly not quite sure what that means but it doesn’t sound good... 😕
