Maximus X Formula Motherboard VRM? 9900k

So I have a Maximus Formula X and a 8700k and I am wanting to upgrade to a 9900k. I have a custom water loop and love to overclock, like my 8700k I have at 5.2ghz everyday and have hit 5.4ghz so when I get the 9900k I intend to delid and LM the thing. So basically the VRM's on this board were definitely not made for the power hungry 9900k and I am concerned if the VRM's will be able to let the 9900k stretch it legs? I believe it is 8 phase but with a doubler? I am not to fly with the the doublers and things of that sort that is why I am reaching out and asking for any input if I should just upgrade to a z390 board and be done with it or will the board hold up? I would like to just keep this board instead of changing but I am open to all ideas.

It will work. Just cool the VRM's.
And please don't do FMA3 small FFT stress testing.

So you think I will be able to pull off hopefully 5.3ghz? And I have the VRM's under water with TPU II enabled.

I love the look of the mobo so I was sad when I see posts of people talking about it not being enough to push the 9900k. No LN2 clocking.
