Only if it is felt that 24V is required. From what I have read, 12 to 24V results in little gain and significant heat increase.
Connecting to motherboard has to be done carefully. You need to make sure the header supports the watts/amps the pump draws.
Never connect a pump to a mobo header.
The 12-24 jump on a normal D5 does very little but the D5 strong on the other hand becomes a beast pushing more pressure than a 35X

Standard D5s do not really respond well to voltage control.
Not in my experience,I have had a 12v D5 on a Lamptron FC5 for nearly 2 years in my bench and for another year in another rig in the same setup.
No problems to report in either instance,RPM control is good with very little variation.
