I'm looking for a compatible full cover block for the MSI 970 GTX card.

(EK website lists and shows the correct pic as a 'MSI GTX 970 4GD5 OC GeForce GTX 970 4GB GDDR5 (V317-001R)' type, EK results show only the 980 version is 'visually' compatible).

Thanks!

Bought a Zotac (ITX, ZT-90101-10P) 970:

The EK waterblock (EK Water Blocks EK-FC970 GTX [WAEK-967]) had to be modified to accomate slightly off center caps and added two small heatsinks (from a Raspberry Pi heatsink kit) in the red rectangle:

Compared to this, where the caps are in a striaght line:

Used a pillar drill and a basic sanding rotary bit (about 10 mm diamter), eg.

Fits like a glove now, and runs at 35 degC when running 3dmark firestrike. It is x2 to x4 faster than my old 480 gtx SLi!! =D:
