Default X470 i compatibility

Dear developers, I really like the portability and performance of Corsair one. I currently have a 3900x cpu. So I was wondering if I could swap the motherboard to X470 i motherboard and change the cpu to 3900x (it has the same tdp as 9900k).

Also is the cooler made of copper or aluminum? I figure it would be nice to liquid metal paste the cpu.

Before proceeding at all with this, please know that this type of hardware swap will void your warranty.

If you're not worried about that, a motherboard swap is possible assuming you're able to source a board that doesn't have any weird space constraints and get the correct mounting hardware for the cooler (hardware would be for Intel 115x, so you'll need AM4 brackets). Cooler has a copper coldplate, so it should be technically okay if you use liquid metal.
