Switching coolers?

hi, have another question for the guys here,

I have this 4870 HIS IceQ card. but the cooler is spoilt. so the card will start but shuts down very quickly due to heat.
Is there anyway i can get a gtx275's twin frozr cooler onto this 4870 card?
I mean, is that even possible? using a gtx275 twin frozr cooler on a 4870?

Thanks.

    Should be possible, I just modded a waterblock onto a DCII shroud on two cards

    so a straight swap should work easily enough, although I would go for an amd variant of the T.F. the spacing may be different on Nvidia cards
