That won't work. Reference style coolers have a plate that covers all the components and has the blower fan attached to this plate as well. If you have the gaming MSI it uses a completely different heatsink that will not fit with this plate or under the reference blower shroud. That being said, you have to compare YOUR
MSI cards circuitry to that of the TItan shown in the pic, not compare it to the reference design 780. The reason being is because MSI could be using a different revision which could deviate from the design shown above as the reference 780. If it does and you try strapping that plate to the MSI 780 and it doesn't 100% match you could crush a component.
That's why I said previously to check your card over closely.
This is actually reason #2 why I always buy reference cards. You know for sure it's reference and can plan accordingly with upgrades to cooling. No guess work.
Here is a pic of the 780/Titan cooler tear down.
