8700k BSOD Cycling

Hey guys,

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:
https://pcpartpicker.com/user/s590078/saved/ZVHZ8d

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.

Some of the BSOD ERROR CODES ARE:

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR

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

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