Valid?  If the question is whether the i9-9900K is compatible with the Z390, then yes it is.

The GSkill 3600 CAS 15 RAM (2x8GB) I'm using has been very good memory.

Yep, a 9900K on a Z390 and overclocked to 5 GHz is a "valid" build... not a bad combo at all.  Another good choice for memory is the GSkill 3200 TridentZ CAS 14... overclocks well.

A critical factor in building a 9700K/9900K system is cooling.  You'll need plenty of it... and it won't be cheap.

Why not just go with the 9700K?  I do not understand everyone's obsession with the 9900K.  To achieve a good overclock with a 9900K with acceptable temps u will have to disable HT.
