I still have never liquid cooled in over 20 yrs of doing my families PC's. I just dont see the benefit vs price vs LEAKS! lol. I know its overclocking but if I need the power of the overclock I just buy a higher powered part. Also I guess it could ambient temp also, rarely gets over 100 degrees here in spokane, maybe 1 or 2 weeks a yr. As it stands I idle at like 25-28 c and under load about 45-55 c in the summer its like 10 higher, so air is just fine and much cheaper!
