I own that same board and an Air 540, I'm not talking quality of the board or block, I'm referring to being able to REACH the block with fittings/tubing if you use a rad in the top that is too thick!!!!!!!!!!

Edit: I would also recommend the use of Mayhems coolants at the moment over the EK coolants, there have been issues just recently with some EK coolants in other people system builds, also some with bad issues with NEW IN BOTTLE never used coolant from them. I love my EK blocks, and I honestly only recommend them to others, but I think they need to work on the coolants they make personally.

Waiting on my EK SLI Terminal to add 2nd card and backplates as well. Once those get there I need to fix on adding another fan up on the 240 radiator. I tried my best with that 90degree rotatory fitting but it caused it to leak due to the pressure it was adding with the fan hitting that fitting. May need to run a longer tubing for that area to fix it. We shall see.

You could try a short extension on the rad port to clear the fan, and then use a 45 or 60 degree rotary.

Looking good though!

First of all, put your memory into the correct spots for dual-channel 2-stick config, this is from the MSI manual that CAME with your board, look at pages 1-6, and 1-15, you will see that your memory is in the wrong slots, should be in slots 2 and 4, you have them in 1 and 3.

Second, it's a budget 970amd board, you will probably not find a heatsink made specifically for that since it's not really an overclocker!!
