i'm wondering if Noctua NH-D15 82.5 CFM CPU Cooler can cool an i9 9900k 3.6 that boosts up to 5 ghz

(+ what mobo is perfect for the i9)

The NH-D15 is among the best aircoolers on the market so yes it can definitely cool a 9900k. 

 

There are a lot of good Z390 mobos.

Any particular brand you like ? MSI, ASUS, Gigabyte all have good Z390 mobos. 

Think about what types of features you want on your mobo which is a good mid-range mobo 

Don't buy to cheap as you need decent VRMs to run the 9900k. 

I am very happy with my Asus Z390-F which is a good mid-range mobo.

My 9900k runs all cores at 5.1ghz with 1,325V. 

Yup, that will keep it cool enough.

05Gb/s - USB 3.2 Gen 1 (USB 3.0, 3.1 Gen1)

10Gb/s - USB 3.2 Gen 2 (USB 3.1 Gen2)

20Gb/s - USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 

40Gb/s - USB 4.0, Thunderbolt 3, Thunderbolt 4

It will keep it cool enough(low 30s idle) with a 5ghz all core overclock with one fan.
