'Lo all! I'm hoping to replace the stock heatpipe assembly on an EVGA 780i FTW. I have an old HR-05 gathering dust, so that's the NB. I have a low profile Enzotech copper sink for the southbridge (somewhere, gotta dig it out). The last hurdle is mosfet cooling. The Thermalright HR-09U Type 4 looks like just the thing, but no one can confirm whether or not it will mount properly on the 780i FTW. It definitely fits on the reference 780i, but the "FTW" is a question mark. Can anyone shed some light? Thanks!

AFAIK the dimensions are the same, so you shouldn't have any difficulty. you're not able to borrow one to test and be sure?

Unfortunately not. =P Thanks though. I've heard that the mounting holes are different on the FTW, but I've not been able to confirm.
