I have an Envinda X79-6M Motherboard (LGA 2011 - 0 ) and an Intel XEON E5-2690 CPU.
It looks like this: View: https://imgur.com/a/2tYkWXX


For the CPU Cooler, it comes with a plastic ring (looks a lot like AMD style) and four plastic screws.

I have a SYY 120MM CPU Cooling fan - ( S5-120-B ) - I bought it here: https://www.amazon.com/SYY-Heatpipes-Premium-Hydraulic-Bearing/dp/B098JHS395
The CPU cooler says it works with the LGA 2011 socket, but I see absolutely no way that this CPU Cooler will connect to the motherboard.

I have no idea what is going on here. What am I missing?
Do I need an AMD style CPU Cooler for this motherboard?
If yes, what CPU Cooler will work with this motherboard?

I am really coming up empty in my searches.
Is there any way to use the SYY 120MM CPU Cooling fan - ( S5-120-B ) ?

Hi,

the case is Cooler Master MasterBox MB320L

But I haven't even gotten that far yet - installing the CPU Cooler to the motherboard has been the real challenge

Just to jump ahead a little bit -

My sense is that the plastic ring needs to be used (because there are no screw slots, just empty holes in the PCB)

I think this might work with something like a Snowman MX-2 CPU Cooler - (like this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/325179188765)

But I don't think that exact Cooler can be used in this case because the wattage threshold is not high enough for the XEON E5-2690
