It has been quite a wile since I built a PC and normally I had always used an MSI MB. This ASUS Bios has some things im not use to seeing and it seems Im not doing something right. Im trying to overclock the CPU to just run at 5.0 but it seems hell bent on running all over the place. I thought I had it figured out but never works. If anyone has any info on how to get this thing working let me know please, everything I seem to find is on a ROG bios style and seems a bit different. Maybe I just havent found the right post yet im sure its been done.
Basically what im looking for is what I need to turn on/off to have it running at a set clock, and where to go for setting the voltages. The old MSI boards i got use to were quite simple and this bios has alot more settings and voltages to play with than I have ever seen.

CPU: i7-9700K with EVGA 240 Closed Loop water cooler
Motherboard: ASUS TUF 370-Pro
Ram: Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR4 3200
SSD/HDD: Samsung 970 EVO 1TB M.2, Samsung 860 EVO 1TB SSD, Toshiba X300 4TB 7200RPM
GPU: EVGA 2080 XC
PSU: EVGA 850 PU
Chassis: Corsair Crystal 570X
OS: Windows 10 Pro

Mind sharing your full system's specs like so:

What sort of a number are you looking to hit? The power deliver on the Z370 platform ins't as beefy as the Z390 chipsets are equipped to run. You may also need to specify what you mean by being all over the place? Furthermore, are you on the latest BIOS update for your motherboard?

Im just looking to put it at 5.0Ghz right now, nothing crazy, its doing the intel thing where it changes the clocks everywhere from 0.8-4.7Ghz right now. I thought about the 390 after I got the 370 but I think it will be fine, Im not going for anything to crazy. I updated the BIOS about 2 hours ago from the web to the latest version. That should all be up to date. I added the info to the original post you asked for. Anything else let me know please.
