I am considering a Z390 Dark for a new I9-9900KS build.
 
I have seen a few reviews mentioning how close the VRM cooling housings are to the CPU socket area.
 
Can anyone confirm any brands of AiO fitting without issue?
 
I am looking at the Corsair 150i as first candidate before I have to start thinking of a custom loop that would prob not have as much clearance issue with a standalone CPU block.
 
Thanks

Does it matter how its mounted ... is there a best Temp way ?

I know even on my H110i GTX and an Asus Maximus VII Hero it could only go one orientation to allow room for the USB connector coming out the side of the pump housing.

Not really sure regarding best temp way as for as cooler orientation on the chip itself.
Here is how mine is mounted:
