Hi and welcome.

I am afraid I can't say for sure whether the waterblocks from a UD9 will fit as I don't have either of the boards but they do look a lot the same. In case you are not aware though I would point out that you will nullify your warranty by removing the stock coolers and fitting waterblocks.  I am in the same boat myself being one of that fraternity.

Maybe somebody here on the forum can help you with more accurate help if they have tried it already.
