1. Does the Noctua NH-D15 cooler fit a Lynx case with ASUS Prime Z390-P motherboard and 4 "Micron Ballistix (Default Digital Storm)" RAM sticks?

2. Is there a way to control the CPU fan speed with the "Digital Storm Vortex Liquid CPU Cooler"?

Welcome to the forum MPK!

I’ll start by saying liquid cooling is the most efficient, takes up less case space, and is better for case airflow than a big bulky twin tower heatsink CPU air cooler.   That said, some folks do like them anyway.   If you can upgrade from the DS branded products to use the Corsair liquid CPU coolers you will get a longer manufacturer warranty.   DS components only carry the 1 yr system parts warranty unless you upgrade the warranty.

1). Probably would fit, but you would need to confirm that with DS Support.   
     The size of big air coolers can interfere with RAM clearance and sometimes their
     height can get too close to case doors/windows.

2). You can usually control CPU fan speed to some degree in BIOS by
     selecting from the usual Fan 3 Speed profiles .     .    
     ..Quiet...Balanced...Performance.    Buying Corsair liquid CPU coolers
     should mean compatibility with Corsair iLink or iCUE control software.
