    If the AW 18 has the current 780M Dual SLI, do I need to buy new heatsinks for 980M SLI or just the cards?

    Just the cards most likely.

    The cards and thermal pads. I think the 980M require two extra squares of padding on the chip.

    Thermal pad placement has changed a bit.

    Heat sinks from 780M or 880M will be fine. You will need the card, some thermal padding, and some good thermal compound. Then you're set. :thumbsup:
