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.

Wow, after seeing you guys switching to a gigabyte board it has me pretty concerned. My chip has run hot since day one on the ACE (i7 8700k). It has a mild OC of 4.7 on all cores and my temps are around 40-42c at idle. It is cooled by a corsair h115 i pro and the water temps are usually around 30c if im remembering right. (ill have to double check when i get off work) I haven't checked the vrm's temps, and to be honest im not sure what a good temp would look like at stock clocks vs a mild OC.
Any insight would be helpful. While the cpu temps don't go over 55c while gaming or benching i feel like they should be lower being that its under water.

Regardless i have yet to experience any audio/ video issues with my build in its current form. ( like some of you have with stuttering) I am still on the bios that shipped with the board which should be the first iteration of it. But i have been updating the intel and msi drivers and software when ever there is a new release.

As far as the KILLER NIC goes it is garbage on the software side of things but in terms of performance it was a great leap from what i was working with before (z77 chipset) i mostly use the on-board wifi which i believe is intel, and my speeds are great steady and reliable. But even when i was using Ethernet i could never get the killer software to work.

MEG ACE is performing really good with 9900k and network but got many troubles with an NVME x4 ssd.
I've build the rig following directions from the manual. Windows 10 is the latest version and UEFI BIOS is updated.
SSD is Crucial P1 1 TB. I'm monitoring temps with HWinfo booting and installing Steam games is ok but during copy of big files after few minutes SSD start to overheat and hitting high temperatures, over 70 C, resulting in an error and stopping task, no throttling or reducing speed.
I was thinking it was a bad NVMe and I was looking for a firmware update but no ones are possible.
But then I tried to extract rar archive from one mechanical hd to another and there were CRC errors that stops the extraction.
PSU is giving enough power (1300w) and voltages 5 and 12 are quite ok, it was providing juice to my previous config.
I used MSI Dragon to enable and disable setting fast HD, not sure correct names now.
What could be the cause of such issues?
I was even trying default settings in BIOS but uptill no progress.
Any help will be appreciated.
