So I am running this and I think it fixed some issues for me. Going to test some things over the weekend on it. If that doesn't work going another direction.

So uninstalled my ACE this weekend, and went with an Aorus Master. Running cooler with none of the issues the ACE had. Very happy with my decision.

Got an i9-9900K and give it a try on Z390 ACE.
This chip needs 1.27v Vcore (under load) to do 5.0GHz Cinebench R15. It looks not a good chip.

BIOS settings:
CPU ratio=50x
Vcore =1.25v, Load line calibration= auto (Mode 3).
The Vcore under Cinebench R15 load is around 1.27v.
Vcore CPU-Z shows is about 20mv less. So I use HWiNFO v6.0.0-3620 to check the Vcore.

It needs 1.28~1.29v (under load) to do Prime95 v26.6 1344K FFT stress test stable.
CPU Core temperature is 70C, and max MOS temperature from HWiNFO is 70C.
BIOS settings:
CPU Ratio=50x
Vcore=1.26v
Load line calibration = Auto (Mode 3)

I didn't OC memory yet. Will try.

"Not a very good chip?"
That is a VERY good chip.
Your CPU needs 1.223v to do prime95 at 5 ghz, not 1.28v.

I saw some can do 5Ghz Cinebench with 1.22v or less (under load).

It looks like a good chip. Your CPU is actually running at 5.025GHz. Go to the BIOS and change the multiplayer to 99.93MHz. This will give a steady 5GHz on Windows. Change Load line calibration to 4, it's the best for this motherboard with little vdroop.

Tested G.Skill F4-4000C19D-16GTZSW 4000MHz XMP.

The default CPU SA/CPU IO voltage is 1.3v/ 1.25v for this 4000Mhz 19-21-21-41 XMP.
It's stable running HCI memtest x16 instances.

I lowered the SA/IO to 1.1v/1.1v and it's stable. More than 2000% without any error.

Still working on Memory Try It! profile 4266MHz 18-20-20-39.

Finished the test on 4266MHz 18-20-20-39. Run HCI Memtest for more than 1 hour and 200%.

I load "Memort Try It!" 4266MHz CL18 profile. The main timings are 18-20-20-39.
SA/IO are lower to 1.20v/ 1.18v.

The result is good.
