Default Water Cooling

I've been looking at using water cooling for my system, but I have to ask, is it as good as they say it is? I am getting a new computer that is beast, and I want to keep the baby as cool as possible. I've been looking at the Thermaltake Aquarius III and I must say, it looks and sounds awesome. So should I go watercooling, or regular fans?

ALso, would it be compatible with a AMD FX-53? http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...103-438&depa=1

You have to factor that you are prolly going to spend 200 vs 50 for a water cooled pc. The only thing that gets you is the ability to oc it more because it will keep it cooler and therefore last longer. So you have to determine if you really want to oc it or not. If you don't want to oc it than water cooling is a waste of money because by the time the chip dies you will have already upgraded to the next best thing. I looked into water cooling but decided not to.
