I'm thinking to upgrade my pc, I want to keep the cooler. Does it will keep the 9900k 5ghz all cores cool with noctua d14?

It's perfectly possible yet not guaranteed.

 

It'll depend on your over all air flow, silicon lottery and how good the motherboard is.

I have 4 intake fans and 3 out-take fans, my case is corsair 400r and the motherboard I'm planning to buy is asus formula hero wi-fi

Up to this point I'd say perfect, thermal wise you're likely to be perfectly fine.

This however is a very poor choice if you're planning on overclocking a CPU like the i9 9900K, this board is relatively 'bad' and extremely overpriced.

 

Have this video for reference:

To be clear, it's perfectly fine for overclocking a 9900K, but it's just way overpriced for what it offers

If you have active cooling on the VRM... mayhaps, you still lose too much power efficiency by the increase of overall heat which if you're aiming for beyond 5ghz will be a considerable issue.

 

The motherboard is simply bad without really any redemption to it.

Sorry I meant Asus ROG Maximus XI Hero WiFi. 

In the past years I used Gigabyte motherboard, and now im using Z77X-UP5. 

What can you recommend ?

The Z390 line up is really straight forwards being honest, all of Gigabyte Aorus (Elite, Pro, Ultra and Master) have the best price to performance in comparison to all other motherboards.

 

Overclocking potential of the cheapest of the bunch the Gigabyte Aorus Elite is on pair with the much more expensive ASUS Maximus Hero XI you had in mind to being with... so it's pretty much a no brainer.

 

The Pro is the one with built in WiFi, seems you need it.

The VRM of the Gigabyte Elite is very good, but not quite as good as the Pro, Ultra, Extreme, or Designare, and then the Master is up another level, I think. The Noctua D14 is fine though. My understanding (and I could be wrong) is that the primary problem is getting the heat from the CPU to the heat spreader, not from the heat spreader to the cooler. So the solution for that is to delid the CPU.

Noctua will send you the attachment pieces if you need them- I think at no charge (maybe only the original owner) if the D14 is still within the 6 year warranty.

Thank you for your help, I decided to go with aorus master

Just updating, yesterday I received the 9900k. it seems that under full load on prime95 the cpu gets thermal throtting. In BFV it fine I run it on ultra and 1440p. 

In idle the temps are 30-45.
