You could use the MSI backplates.
Look at this picture:

The 3 'yellow' screws are not used by the EK block, the rest are...

If for some reason it does NOT fit you can always order the backplates from EK anyway wink.gif

Just an update.
The MSI backplates aren't compatible with the EK waterblock UNLESS you have suitable screw sizes.
The MSI screws are too narrow and the included EK screws aren't long enough.
Have ordered two backplates from EKWB to complete the build.
On the bright side, both MSI 980 ti Gaming 6G cards I have have the perfect ASIC (if you believe in it) for putting under water.
Will post results in a few days when the backplates arrive.

If it was only the screw that is different, you could have opt to buy the right screw from ebay so that u can still use the original backplate all for $3.59.

Not a bad idea.
Thanks

If you ever decide to go buy the right screw, kindly post it in the MSI 980 ti thread so we can see how it looks as i am also in the fence of getting both my MSI 980 ti watercool.

I have the MSI 6G 980ti and i am going to put the EK waterblock on it. Now, if i want to add a second 980ti should i do the same with it and buy a MSI 980ti and put another EK waterblock on it or would one that already has a waterblock work in SLI without any performance issues?

If I understand correctly, are you asking if you could have one watercooled and one air cooled?, or an MSI Gaming 6G and another possibly different brand 980 ti?
Theoretically yes, of course you could, but I had that option and the water loop just looks so much better over two of the same cards.
My backplates arrived today and I'll be completing the loop tomorrow if you're interested in cooling performance and how it looks.
If you don't care how it looks, get another 980 ti watercooled and SLI them up, I had to go both MSI though as it would ruin the look of the build if I strayed from red and black.
