What does Asus Multi-Core enhancement do? It seems like you have all the cores set to 42 multiplier so maybe that set to Auto is actually bypassing your manual overclock. I also see you have the CPU Cache Multi to 32. I think that's a little low.

Asus Multicore Enhancement setting to Auto applies the turbo ratio to all cores. Setting to Disabled uses Intel turbo policies. These options are only effective at stock CPU settings.
When a manual overclock is applied, the turbo ratios are assigned according to the CPU Core Ratio settings.
My advice would be use Windows high performance power plan vs balanced or power saver. Update BIOS to latest version 1902 4-26-2018.

Ok guys, I found the problem and I will leave my solution here for others in need.
After a lot of research I found that some people were having the same issue after a windows update that updated the processor micro code and, for some reason, f*cked peoples OC. I'm running windows 10 version 1709 and the update that did this for me was the KB4090007. Just unnistall this update and be happy again with your OC.
And don't forget to block the update. I did it with WUMT Wrapper Script.
I hope this helps someone.
