Where should i mount this cooler https://www.amazon.com/MSI-CORELIQUID-Supported-Compatible-Platforms/dp/B09CQDBFPC in this case https://www.amazon.com/Phanteks-PH-EC360ATG_DBK02-Ultra-fine-Performance-Digital-RGB/dp/B0B3D2Z1C3?

 

Will this fit am5 socket? It says its for am4, but i heard that some am4 coolers are compatible with am5. 

 

Is this cooler any good?

I personally try and mount AIOs in the top as exhaust. Its compatible with AM5 only as long as it uses the stock backplate. If it has its own backplate, it is NOT compatible as AM4 setup. If it includes AM5 specific hardware, then it should be compatible.

Sorry im not so good at this so this question may sound dumb. What do you mean by stock backplate and how do i know if it has its iwn backplate or not?

Looking at the listing you posted, it has its own backplate. This cooler is NOT compatible with AM5 motherboards. If you did get this cooler, you would need to contact MSI to get a kit to make it compatible.

i would go with a different aio. they are supposedly working fine now, but they have a troubled history..

 

besides that, 160$ is outrageous imo, could get the much better liquid freezer 2 for much less
