Bittorrent is checksummed quite heavily thus the image you have is the
same one pushed by the Fedora Project. If there is a checksum error it's
likely that you could try burning the image at a lower speed because the
torrent should deliver the correct thing no question.

This after all is one of the biggest advantages of Bittorrent, it's
resumable and you are ensured always to get the correct file without bit
errors.
