As in the title will this CPU be ok for my motherboard?

Second question, is it worth to change from i5 6600K (@4.2)?

8th/9th gen won't work. Same socket yes but there are inactive pins in your motherboard's socket that are active on 300 series boards necessary for these processors to work.

Best you can do is 7700k with bios update or overhaul system.
