the gd 65 has lower heatsinks than the asrock motherboard. It will be cutting it close though and will only apply to push pull (the heatsinks are slightly lower on the msi board as well, not as wide

it will fit in stock config no matter what with that motherboard and case :)  If if you want to do push pull, you will need to use a dremel and make the screw holes a little closer to the case window side so that it clears the motherboard heatsinks

Literally the only recommendation i would want to make is for the gpu. stick with the 290x, but the asus cooler was designed around the nvidia chips, which has a larger die size, and therefore makes more contact with the heatpipes while the 290x is a smaller chip and seems to suffer from not being big enough to contact all the heatpipes (heat is too concentrated for the design of the cooler). I would recommend the sapphire toxic if you can find one, Or the gigabyte variant. The asus one is by no means "bad" in any way, but it does not seem to perform to the typical expectations of an asus direct cuii card with this chip.

other than this your build is pretty exceptional, and if you really wanted to, you could get the i5 instead to save some money for no loss in gaming performance, but this is up to you

The gigabyte version of the 290x is fairly good, but there are other ones. i just know about the slight design error of the asus one via review sites (i have the direct cu ii 780 and was curious about the same cooler on the amd cards and i found the information above)
