Water on motherboard is more risky than pushing your cpu voltage and temps just before the max designed thermal limit (80C)
Water on motherboard = a slow death for your mobo or an instant death if your unlucky
VRM and NB always running at 70C or more is also a slow death for your mobo
My GIgabyte died when i driped a bit of water on it when i was making my custom loop it had a slow death of degrading in 10 days after 10 days it will not oc and it will crash on stock settings within 1-3 hours
If your benchmarking you wouldn't get 100% marks unless you get it 24/7 stable on stress if you can push from 4.8GHZ to 5GHZ wihout being stable on stress but stable enough to bench everything theres a chance that your benches will be the same as benching on 4.8GHZ
