8700k Overclocking on MSI Z390 GAMING PRO CARBON

Hello,
I'm trying to overclock a 8700k on MSI Z390 Gaming PRO Carbon motherboard.
Here are my BIOS settings: https://imgur.com/a/W4Xnph5
I can't reach 5GHz even the previous owner of the 8700k (i'm the second) proof me that is CPU it's a little bit 'golden sample'.

Can someone help me? I'm doing something wrong?

I forget to say, the problem is that I get BSODs and prime95 rounding errors.

what does being, "a little bit 'golden sample'", insinuate?

my 8700K on Z370 runs 5GHz @ 1.25v with no problem. am actually about to start lowering and testing again to determine how low it can actually go soon.
i will get you the current settings to compare sometime tonight.

Golden sample meaning it's a good chip and can go 5Ghz to low voltage. I don't know what I do wrong, or what settings I should change...
