i went to windows msconfig and enabled all 12 cores and i after could go to bios and get over 4.7ghz and put it in 5.0ghz windows was stable but cpu-z and task manager in performance told me that is only on 4.3GHZ still. i have power plan in highest and still no overclock

Update your post to include full system hardware specs and OS.

Include PSU: make, model, wattage, age, condition.

8700k is 6core/12thread mate

I'm not sure you addressed your BIOS setting properly

you probably right but i went to the msconfig and enabled all 12 threads and then i could get my overclock above 47Ghz if i dont enable them all i cant get over 47Ghz in Bios its like it have a limit or something and when i do that it dosent show the overclock in task manager i only says its on 43Ghz

Nothing about what you're describing sounds correct

You should not be overclocking from your desktop anyways. I would recommend going back to stock settings and doing a proper readup on overclocking. Here's a coffeelake guide to get started.

I’m not sure what you are seeing in the BIOS but H370 boards are not intended for overclocking but I believe some do allow you to push all cores to max boost speed but not beyond. If you wanted to OC to 5.0 you needed a Z370 or Z390 motherboard.
ohhhh yeah okay thank you so much
what would you recommend betwen Z370 and Z390
