OC 8700k on an Asus z370-h

So recently I've been trying to overclock my 8700k on a Z370-h mobo.
(It was the only Asus motherboard available where I bought my components).

So I set the goal for 5 ghz which I consider fairly modest considering the cooling is decent (Kraken x62).

So a week of tweaking (Im new to this) has resulted in the following: Vcore 1.355 and a 5ghz overclock.
Seems right now to be running fairly decent.
I havent done any tweaking to ram performance. Can I?
Havent managed to find any specific OC guides on the z370-h motherboard.
Can I push it further or does this board have its limitations around 5ghz?
Current Idle temp: 30c
Temp under load: 69c


Any advice regarding tweaks that can increase performance are greatly appreciated.

Setup:
Ram: Corsair Vengeance LPX Black 16GB (2x8GB) / 3000MHz / DDR4
CPU: Intel Core i7-8700K
Mobo: ASUS ROG STRIX Z370-H GAMING
GPU: Strix 1080
Powersupply: Corsair PowerSupply (PSU) RM750x 750W
