Intel Core i5 8600k OC help

Hello everyone, I have this setup for about 9 months (it was brand new, no used parts) running on optimized cpu oc settings at 4.6ghz. Mobo is Asrock z370 pro4 and Coolermaster Masterliquid 240 is keeping it cool, kinda. I have never overclocked cpu before. After lots of tutorials and readings about cpu configuration settings, 5ghz was easy by letting mobo decide the voltage part, but it got pretty hot. Throttling at 93 celsius. I really don't want to mess with voltage part on my own, any advices how high can I go? Should I use offset or fixed voltage, LLC? Everything else related to voltage I barely understand. ? I would appreciate any help, thanks!

1.4V, which is what many motherboards go past on auto. You really shouldnt auto mode all the way.

fixed voltage is easier to handle. LLC to the middle level (say BIOS has level 1 to 5, use 3).

 

But the most important thing is to monitor CPU core voltage (Vcore) under use in Windows. I recommend HWmonitor for the inexperienced, but you should move to HWinfo's sensor mode once you get along with things.

If i set fixed voltage to 1.350v and llc to level 3, what it actually does to cpu voltage under heavy load?

 

Right now clock is 4.6ghz optimized overclock, everything is pre set by mobo? and voltage is 1.3 in hwinfo sensor mode but all cores are at 58 celsius at idle.

1.35V is merely the base of voltage the motherboard will try output. Under load and without LLC (i.e. lowest LLC = largest level number) voltage will drop quite a bit. That's why you need LLC to correct this voltage dip.

Got it working at 5ghz with voltage set at 1.325V in bios and LLC level 2 and i'm completely confused with hwinfo sensor readings. Vcore max - 1.304V, Vcore min - 0.645V and during stress test Vcore max - 1.245V. On top of all this, CPU-Z says Vcore - 1.328V. Is that okay for daily use and could i go above that voltage if i would like to increase clock to 5.1ghz or more?
