Hi. So I am fairly new to overclocking and this forums as well. I am trying to overclock my delid LM 8700k on my MSI z370i Mobo with noctua d15s cooler. What I can't seem to figure out are what settings to have for 4.8ghz and more.

I tried following some vids on YouTube but most of them show 8600k processors or with a different style Mobo. I also have tried out some of the settings but I noticed setting weird that I can't seem to solve.

The settings were compared to other overclock settings. But the thing I have noticed is that when I tried prime95 stress test, the core clock speed decreases as shown in cpu-z. Can't seem to fix that.

Now I'm here asking you fellow overclockers to give a noob some advice on how to get not only a stable overclock, but accurate and fixed settings that won't fail. I have 4 ml120 pro rgb fans on case and 1 noctua fan that came included with the d15s cooler.

Much appreciated, thanks.

Ps- I failed to search for the same Mobo and cpu post through here and I'm currently on a smartphone (not home atm).

set "long duration power limit" and "short durartion power limit" and "cpu current limit" to maximum by typing "9999" .
put a small fan on top of the vrm blasting air to the vrm heatsink if you are afraid of trying the above settings, or go buy the godlike z370.

Use Intel XTU to see what is throttling then adjust the setting in BIOS if you can or it might show a need for VRM cooling.

For VRM fan-cooling on ITX MBs, I'll say low-RPM fans are useless.
I tried Noctua A4x10 but it gave zero performance.
I also tried Noctua NF-P12 directly blowing the VRM, 3 degrees decreased from 96C to 93C but it's a 12cm fan that I can't install it.

power limit is prior
