Those Dell boards are proprietary , can't mount them in a standard ATX case. The case power pinouts are also different.
I know this thread is 2 years old, but I wanted to point out that this statement isn't actually true (in 2022). There are plenty of videos on YouTube covering how to transplant your OptiPlex guts into another case. Yes, there are some hiccups like front panel and fan headers, but there are also a lot of solutions offered.

I came here because the OP asked exactly my question, and I was surprised to find a "you can't do that" on Tom's Hardware. Once I find a solution (fingers crossed), I'll be sure to either update this post or add to the thread.

Here ya go. Just remove the fan header from the old fan and put the wires of the new fan in the correct order into the old header. Wiring diagram pops up at 6:10 in the video.
