Default Evga GTX 980ti waterblock

Hello, I'm going to be watercooling my evga GTX 980 Ti 6GB Superclocked+ ACX 2.0+. I heard that the titan x waterblock is compatible with it, but when I go to the cooking configurator page on ek, it doesn't show up.
Is this waterblock compatible with my gpu?

Thank you

No, because that block is for Pascal Titan X.

Doesn't look like PPC has a block for your card.

Yea, I looked around and couldn't find one. I bought a used one for a pretty good price. Just have to find a backplate, or try to find a way to use the original one

I used the stock plates on my TXps. Little creativity goes a long way.

Yea, I've been checking that out. So I've been looking for thermal pads. I couldn't find exact size, so I'm getting some a little bigger, and will cut. So for the backplate though, I could use new thermal pads right? I dont need to use stock ones correct?

Stock ones wouldn't hurt. Doesn't have to be exact, just has to stick.

I ended keeping stock thermal pads on backplate. Used
m3 0.5 x 8mm screws, worked perfectly. Thanks for the help.
