Kraken x61/i7-9700k compatibility

I've got a Kraken x61 cooling my i7-4790k on a Z97 LGA 1150 board. I've only had it for a few years and it seems to still be in good condition -- the 4790k idles at 25C-35C.

I'm upgrading to a Z390 LGA 1151 board and an i7-9700k. Can I use the same cooler? It's been long enough where I've lost all mounting hardware except for what's necessary to mount it on my current setup.

If you look at the manual https://www.nzxt.com/manuals/krakenx61/X61-115X.html 1150 and 1151 use the same stuff.

Cool, I figured it would be fine but I just needed someone else to look at it to make sure I'm not an idiot. Thank you.
