With overclocking, there are several factors involved. You need to make sure your motherboard settings are all set correctly.

I would take a look at your voltage settings. However, changing your voltage can be dangerous. Do this only if you know what you are doing.

"The i5-7600K targets high end gamers, it sits just behind the flagship i7-7700K in Intel’s Kaby Lake lineup. The 7600K will likely be the most popular gaming CPU of 2017"

As far as I know there is no such thing as an i7-7600k. First, I would make sure of the CPU you have on hand.

Remember, that CPUs have different top speeds based on how many cores are active. The all core speed is always lower than the single core speed by default.
