Hi all!
I have an ASUS B360-H Gaming motherboard and I am wondering if it can handle an i9 9900 (non k). Can motherboard's VRM handle the power consumptionof this CPU?

The manufacturer website QVL includes the i9-9900 and K versions as supported, so I would say yes. Just insure that your cooling is sufficient with CoreTemp or similar.
I have known that this motherboard support i9 9900 (non k) but I don’t know if its VRM can handle the power consumption of i9 9900 (non k)

You wont be able to OC in this motherboard, and you are buying a non-K CPU, so the VRM should be good enough.

Also Asus usually don't include a VRM sensor so you probably wont be able to read any temp value, no matter what monitoring software you use (hwinfo, coretemp, etc.).

And as mention by RealBeast, just make sure you use a decent cpu cooler (stock one kinda sucks) and you have good airflow inside your case.
