You don't mention overclocking the thing, so no it wouldn't be worth it at all to water-cool it.

Do this.. install good fans (facing the PROPER way) into all your fan slots, run the system, do some benchmarking tests to give the system a good workout, and see if you have heat issues. Modern processors have thermistors for you to monitor the temperature of your system. If you do not have any shutdown issues, while putting the system through its paces, you should be fine. If you are overclocking (which personally I don't do), you may need additional cooling measures. But a standard chip on a standard motherboard should not need additional cooling other than fans. PS: By "properly installed" fans, I mean fans that are blowing the right way. Remember.. fans blow the heat in the system OUT, not blow cold air in. So make sure they are facing the right way.

If your not overclocking then no, no it is not... although even for overclocking you don't really need a water cooling, My Cooler Master EVO 212 keeps my Intel i5 2500K like 30c - 40c which is pretty cool. so even a good heatsink will be fine. @Levontaun I think it was proven that a computer actually stays cooler when the fans are blowing in then out... and heat rises anyways... so when you blow in cold air, it forces the heat out....
