Not necessarily, you have to take into account the temperature of your room too. I would only buy a water cooling setup if I was OCing. Try this program too http://www.download.com/SpeedFan/300...ml?tag=lst-0-1 it will show you the temp of your CPU and also you can set the speed of your fans.

it's not needed. Air cooling will be just fine. Though if you have the money and you want to try water cooling then sure, go for it. It's going to give you better temperatures, but you will be just fine with air cooling too.
