Does anyone happen to know if the 4 hole mounts for GPU coolers on the 9800 series cards match up with the 8800 series? (I assume all the 8800 series is the same from the 8800GTS 640 to the newer G92 GTS and GT?)

I wanted to swap my waterblock from my 8800GTS 640 to a 9800 GTX or even a 260/280. Anyone have any personal experience with this GPU cooler swap?

Alright everyone...I see that 57 people have read this without a reply.

Here is what I found out by emailing with Mark (owner/CEO) from and him giving me the names of a couple people to call @ Swiftech directly:

9800GTX will work with most mounting systems for 7800 series and 8800 series. The 8800GTS 640 that I am pulling my Swiftech MCW60 block from has a 8800 series mount bracket. The 9800GTX doesn't need it and can be mounted using the stock mount holes and hardware. Apparently the guy had both cards and blocks sitting nearby as he said he tested the fits while I was on the phone with him. Just FYI for all...
