I am doing a rebuild into a smaller case. And I’ll be using a different AIO. I’m using a NZXT z53 AIO which is 240mm.
Will this work ok for a Ryzen 3900X?

Parts
Asus Rog crosshair VIII formula mobo
RYZEN 3900X
STRIX 3090
6 SL 120’s LIAN LI Casefans
2 SL 140’s LIAN LI case fans
32 go of trident skill z
Lian Li 0-11 mini case

Sure... if you don't use it as exhaust. If you do, in the worst case you'll lose boost bins on the 3900X.
The boost curves on Ryzen 3000 aren't as aggressive as 5000 is; you have to keep it under 70 or 80C for the best performance.
I forget which it is exactly, but I think it's under 80C, as I recall a bunch of Ryzen 3000 temperature threads, and that number came up often.

Barely, if you don't push CPU too hard an with reasonable voltage. For best performance with boost and PBO enabled it needs to stay under 70c

So make the radiator intake (good looking side of fans) ( exhaust ugly side with sticker)

bottom set intake (3 fans) 120
top fans exhaust (3 fans) 120
right fans radiator (2 fans) 140
