I intend to upgrade coming October and would like to purchase and watercool a Z97 Motherboard at that time.
Currently, I have the old Mosfet/Chipset EK waterblocks of my Z77 Maximus V Formula and was wondering if I could reuse them with the Z97 Maximus VII Formula or any other Z97 Motherboard.
I have already contacted EKWB, however they responded with a standard "cannot advise due to possible incompatability" answer.
Do you have any experience with the issue at hand or possibly even this particular case?
I would even consider modding the block, should there be no other option.
Strictly from a measurement perspective, I personally donīt see why it shouldnīt fit, since the Formula line has pretty much maintained its core dimensions regarding the concerned areas, namely Chipset & Mosfets.
Perhaps even other boards, which are based upon the Formula design, such as Asrockīs OC Formula could fit.
I would appreciate your input and thanks in advance.
