8700k Aorus Gaming 7. System bsoding (cycling on boot) after an overclock attempt(even on defaults)

Hey guys,

Im kind of new to this whole thing and I recently just delidded my 8700k and tried to finally overclock it following this guide: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcZkEZ8x3oA.

My rig set up:

The problem is, after i did it, im getting a bsod cycle and repair tool cycle that wouldnt even let me boot my pc. Sometimes it just gets stuck on the bios logo screen.

I tried going back and upping the voltage but im getting the same thing over and over.

At the end I gave up and tried going back to stock settings and i still got bsod cycle. I upped the voltage and it went away.

My question is: did i do something wrong? I cant go any higher than stock frequency as it instantly sends me into bsod cycle.


I tried switching up psus as I thought the problem is with the power so my guess is i messed up the mobo or my ram.

Things I tried doing:
Switching PSUs
Upping Vcore
Decreasing frequency
Reinstalling Ram
Checking if cpu and motherboard pins are not damaged
Resetting CMOS
