So im planning to redo my rig, and I thought the Z390 would be a good Motherboard for an i5, but i have a h100i v2 cooler and not sure if it would fit with the board, if anyone has one by chance let me know if it works, Im sure it will but just being double careful

The Z390 will be more than enough for a i5, and is good for the i7 too. But keep in mind the Z390 can support the 8th/9th gen i5/i7 only. If you don't want to upgrade to i7, may consider to buy Z370/Z270, but it is up to you. One more double check the MB/cpu compatibility first, before you buy the MB.

Also if you will buy the Z390, you may or may not have the problem for the AIO fan to fit into the top panel of the case, check out my answer in other thread, you may have the idea what I mean.

Yeah mine is currently placed in the Front but it doesn't have the best airflow, I am debating on getting a new case that has Top and Front radiator support. Thank you for the recommendation ill take a look at them
