Just picked up a 8700k and cant even get it to 4.8-4.9 ghz. I get multiple BSOD erros from windows which i will list below.
____
Error 1: KMODE EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED
Error 2: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
Error 3: SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION
Error 4: PAGE_FUALT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
____

After reading up about these errors they all link to different things and nothing specific that I can fix. I have tried swapping out with faster ram nothing has worked. Ive increased voltages to 1.35 for a 4.9 ghz overclock and is still unstable. Does anyone know some things I could try or am I not seeing a pattern or something?

I will list my pc specifications right here
