Looking to overclock i7 9700k

Hello everyone,

It's been awhile since I've last done some overclocking...a little over 6 years. I recently built a new pc and vaguely remember a few things about tinkering with bus clocks/multipliers/voltage/stress tests. Can anyone refresh my memory on what I need to know to get back into making the best of my new system?

Here are the specs of my build:
CPU: Intel i7 9700k
GPU: GIGABYTE RTX 2070 WINDFORCE
PSU: Seasonic FOCUS Plus Series SSR-750FX 750W
MB: GIGABYTE Z390 AORUS MASTER
Memory: G.SKILL TridentZ DDR4 3000 2x8GB
CPU COOLING: Corsair H150i PRO RGB

I also recently applied some arctic silver 5, so I'm waiting for that to set...not sure if this is important, but let me know if I should hold off on overclocking.
Any tips or advice would be appreciated

This is kind of a generic question. There are literally hundreds of overclocking tutorials already out there. Much better for you to read/view a few of those and then ask more specific questions after you've re-educated yourself. You can see some of the i7-9700k overclocking results here in this thread.

Just increase the clock multiplier and use the least amount of core voltage for a stable overclock stress testing.
