Question Thoughts On Artic Liquid Freezer II 280?

I have a Ryzen 5 5600X I was looking to cool with the Artic Liquid Freezer II 280.

Ok, so we all know there are a lot of choices out there, and I wasn’t planning on spending the next 6 months researching... LOL

I read a little on the cooler, just like any of them out there, they all seem to have their Pros & Cons.

But if there is a general consensus, in the same price range, for a far superior cooler, even better cooling, I’d love to hear some thoughts on this?

Also, it’s my understanding, that if you place it in the front of the case, the hoses should be at the bottom, and the hoses going up to the pump should also be at the bottom?
