Yes, although it does look that way, that larger, white slot on the SuperMicro motherboard is actually an old-school standard PCI slot to support ancient adapters (backward compatibility).

is running the same fan setup like yours but with passive i30s and e5-2620s going to be too hot?

Despite being a server configuration, the server components deliver silent operation at idle. The system is not audible over ambient room noise at normal loads. At peak loads the system is audible in the room, with most of noise being a low/bass sounding rush of air being pushed through the chassis.

Passive i30s would probably suffice running with two 95W 2620 CPUs, but the rest of your case fans should be top-notch (Noctua) with 140mm front intakes for sure. You'll need maximum air flow through the case when both CPUs are fully loaded.
