I want to buy an Asrock X370 Taichi and as far as I can tell it doesn't have AM3 mounting holes like the Crosshair VI Hero. I have an Antec Kuhler H2o 620 which isn't on the list above. Am I f*cked? No upgrade kits for me?

What was the source of this information?
Antec support just told me (as of 21/07/17) that they have no AM4 brackets for the H1200 Pro.
