I think a universal is good enough for just the core, but doesn't cool the other parts of the card as well. I'm not looking for aesthetics and I'm not really looking for max clocks on water anyways. I use water when testing, setting up an OS, or if I'm running a certain bench that doesn't really need Ln2. Now my card clocks poorly on LN2 and I have never really tested it on water.
