I have a swiftech MCW40 gpu chipset cooler. I want to get the new card (Geforce 6800 GT) and put my waterblock on it. Problem is, I don't think there are any adapters to do so. I emailed swiftech and they said you cant attach this water block to the new cards.

So.... You guys think I can use Artic Silver thermal epoxy to glue this thing on? Will it fit? Any one have any experiences?

It's dimensions for my water block are:

L2.5" x W2.0" x H0.73" (L63.5 x W51 x H18.5 mm)

I don't think it's a good idea epoxying a wb to a new vc. Your best bet is to wait till there's a new wb for the 6800 series cards. It would be a shame if you epoxied that wb and kill the card.

The thing is. I don't feel like draining my system and attaching new stuff. But you are right about possibly breaking my card. Althought I do plan to get the BFG oneand it has a lifetime warrenty. I guess I can't really avoid fixing up my system anymore.
