Default H80i Vs. H80i V2 bracket question.


I wasn't easily able to find this information from the support pages so I would be grateful for any specific information.

I have a 4 year old H80i that has recently developed a "pumptap" noise. I would like to be able to straight swap out the entire unit and preferably without messing about with the in situ backplate (Intel LGA1150 socket). I can only seem to find the Version2 of the H80i available but am unable to find out if the mounting is identical in form and fit. (The best I could see was that there is only one spare plate for that socket that is seemingly available as an aftermarket part. But it is not really that specific about V1/v2)

I could access the back of the MB around the CPU but I'd have to lay waste to a really tidy cable management job that was done on the initial build to get my nondexterous man paws in there :)

tl;dr: can I use the V1 plate to mount a new V2 unit ? Or should I go out of my way to try to source a V1 from somewhere?
