Can someone tell me how to figure out clearance for mounting an AIO up top?

Thinking of mounting a 360 rad in rad in the top of an Enthoo Evolv but don’t know know if it’ll interfere with either the mobo or RAM

In case anyone’s wondering the mobo is an Aorus Gaming 7

Case - Enthoo Evolv TG ATX

AIO - looking st both the NZXT X72 and the Corsair H150i Pro

RAM - Trident Z RGB 8x2 3200mhz

Also I’m going to be replacing the fans with some RGB ones, not sure if that’s note worthy or not

Should be fine.

That case has a different mounting method to most cases. In most cases, a radiator is given enough space above the motherboard so that there's no issue with clearances.

The Enthoo Evolv has a different way of installing radiators, you put in the motherboard & ram, then you install the radiator on a top mount sliding rail.

Here's three builds of that case + the X72 (I assume the h150i would be the same).
