I did it with 1.35 like the video.

crashed on Cinebench

1.38 is better?
Every CPU is different. Some require more voltage, some require less, some just can't hit certain speeds. That's why it's called a "silicon lottery".

You can try adding voltage in .010 increments until it's stable without exceeding 1.40v. Monitor temps and try to stay under 80C under full load.

If all of that fails, bringing your clock down to 4.9GHz will most likely succeed.

If you have AVX offset set to anything other than 0, it will just prevent your CPU from running at 5GHz. This setting doesn't seem to work right in macOS. Therefore, set AVX offset to 0.

How much RAM do you have installed and if you use 2 ram sticks, did you configure them correctly in Dual Channel configuration?
