Default Question about the AMD FX series

I'm currently building my first system from the ground up.
I'm looking at purchasing the AMD FX8350 but my question is do all the chips in this series have to be water-cooled?

I'd reconsider the purchase unless you're getting it cheap. They don't have to be water cooled, but I'd suggest an AIO anyways just to keep it cool.

Why reconsider? What would you recommend? So far I'm working with ASUS Radeon R9 380 STRIX-R9380-DC2OC-2GD5-GAMING 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - Newegg.com and ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS - Newegg.com
