AMD and the future of a 2U

Enterprise NCC-1701-E, the 2U designed to outclass and outperform its predecessor is nearing its final construction stages.
I’m going to use the AMD cooling system vs the alternative one I bought; I’ll keep an eye on temperature. It has a decent number of fans, I do not think cooling will be a problem with this case.
I’ve nearly secured space, but there are a few questions I must determine myself before committing. Estimated time to completion is one to two weeks until its online and performing admirably.

For this cruel unsaid, won’t concede.

The fan plate is of the wrong type for the board. This confuses and frightens me. I will either solve this with additional mana or have faith in AMD’s ability to build a decent heatsink and fan. The board is built for a cpu plate with four screw holes in each corner. The third party one I bought has only two, and they are positioned in such a way that I can’t even rotate it 45 degrees to rig something together.
This completely halts my plans. It will remain in a disassembled state on the floor in my living room.
