Title says it all. I'm parting out a build with a Ryzen 9 7950x and I'm trying to find a good AIO for it. I was looking at the Kraken Z73 but after some research although NZXT says its compatible , they recommend you reach out to their customer support to get one of their AM5 brackets ( https://support.nzxt.com/hc/en-us/articles/8315643109019-Will-NZXT-Provide-an-AM5-bracket- ). I would really like to just buy an AIO that supports AM5 rather than having to reach out to customer support in order to get a special bracket. Although if it was commercially available that wouldn't bother me too much. Any information is appreciated, thanks in advance!

AM5 is too new to guarantee compatibility, IMO. Anything you buy for a couple months could be missing the AM5 brackets. That means contacting the cooler manufacturer and getting the (usually free) parts.
