Can anyone give me step by step to overclock my i7 9700k cpu my motherboard is asus rog strix b360-h gaming
 
The 9700K's max single core turbo is 4.9 GHz....; best all-core loadings should hit 4.6 GHz, if cooling is adequate and there are no power limitations imposed. (Perhaps Intel's XTU will at least allow overruling the turbo-boost duration limit and power/TDP limits even with a B360 so you can at least possibly see sustained all-core 4.6 GHz...which is PLENTY for most mortals, save for bragging rights, sounding impressive, etc.,perhaps)

The i7 9700 gets 3.0ghz and the i7 9700k gets 3.6ghz with the capability to get maybe 4.9ghz why wouldn't I want to try get that? Isn't that what people buy the K versions 🤔

Ya I want to run it at 5ghz, and your saying my motherboard isn't able to do it, so I have to buy a new motherboard is it?
