I would like to strongly second the OP's sentiments, WHY is overclocking blocked on the 8700k on the Z390 Designare?

My benchmarks went from 6722 single core on the Z370 with 5.0ghz oc to 5600's on the Z390 without overclock...

For anyone struggling with this, the issue was very simple and dumb. Gigabyte has changed the format of some bios entries from an "Enter" with a context menu popup to a page up/down format. Simply highlight the cpu multiplier entry where it usually says "Auto" and use page up/down to select your multiplier (50 for 5.0gHz). It allows up to 52.
