Point in advance: please no one say: "Oh you're so stupid buying a super-expensive card with super special cooling on it just so you can through away the super special, innocent cooler"

Anyway, I am planning to buy an MSI GTX 770 Gaming Twin Frozr IV for my new Haswell build, mainly because it is on sale and I have heard great reviews about. Over the next short while I will be installing a closed loop in my case (Phantom 630) and I want to water cool my GPU.

My question is: will I be able to fit a standard GTX 770 water cooling full block on it, or is the PCB of a funky shape that won't allow me to?

Bonus points: Same question but for the ASUS direct CU II GTX 770

Which block are you looking at? The DCUII is not the same as a reference PCB, but EK makes waterblocks specifically for that card.

The MSI 770 gaming is a custom PCB card and there are no full cover blocks for it.
The 770 CUII is a custom card as well but EK makes a full cover black that will fit it. Because the 770 CUII uses the same PCB as the 680 CUII the water block for it fits too.
