I do not have experience with actual Intel and AMD CPUs but a lot with 
cooling of hot machines.

AMD CPU use even a bit less power than Intel CPUs. But it could be that 
the off-the-shelf fans are not the best choice.

Get the biggest heatsink you can find which still fits into the box with 
also a huge Papst fan.

If this is still to much noise, take water.

I would still take Tyan motherboards.
