Hello. So I want to overclock my CPU but I'm quite a newby when it comes to it. I have a ASUS TUF H370-PRO GAMING motherboard and my stupid question is how can I access the menu in which the overclocking is done ? Do I need to download a program like for example ASUS GPU TweakII but for CPU or do I need to access something else ?

You can OC your CPU in two ways. First, you can done this in BIOS, or you can use Intel Extreme Tuning Utility software. Though, if you don't know how to do it, then don't do it yourself.
 
SkyNetRising has it absolutely right...The H370 cannot overclock. The 8700K has a lot of overclocking potential but to unlock it you do need a Z370 or Z390 motherboard. If you do upgrade go Z390 as it is the newest. I have the Z370 and have overclocked mine to an all core 4.9GHz at a low vcore and 5GHz is more than achievable...
