I Need a good fan for a 2700X that fits on my custom HP motherboard (square connection)

Hello, if you can help that would be great.

here's the thing;

I have an HP OMEN 880-164nf

B350 chipset with a Ryzen 5 2600 inside and a HP generic fan on top of it (very bad quality)

I need to upgrade to the highest possible CPU model which is the 2700X

The 2700X comes with a Wraith Prism but I can't attach it to my motherboard (Higos2) which is a HP custom board...

HP Desktop PCs - motherboard specifications, Higos2 | HP® Customer Support 


As you can see, it's a custom HP solution, I can only use Mounting Brackets  that are in a square shape instead of the rectangular shape of AM4 sockets (4 screws in a square shape, like Intel sockets actually)


So I'm looking for another cooling solution that would adapt to the MB
I was thinking to the  "Be quiet! Pure Rock" or the "Be quiet! Pure Rock Slim"  or any other fan that would fit on HP Motherboards in fact....


thanks for helping.
