XPS 730x, upgrade to H2C

So I purchased a H2C unit for my XPS 730x off Ebay today. It doesn't come with any mounting hardware. My question is will I be able to use the hardware from the current heat sink and fans for the H2C unit?

Re: 730x upgrade to H2C

I doubt it. Every liquid cooler I've seen/had used a proprietary mounting system.

It doesn't matter as it won't be compatible anyway but what "H2C" did you buy?

Re: 730x upgrade to H2C

I bought the one from dell that is designed for the 730x. That's why I was hoping the hardware would match up.

I believe the model number is JM614.

I did some searches for that model and saw pictures of it but nothing to indicate what, if any, is needed to install it.

Thanks for the response! I guess I'll just wait until it arrives this weekend. I'll post the outcome of the situation then.

Depends on how many parts are included.

The custom water block has screws.
