Water cooling works fine.
Intel hasn't shipped a sufficient sink in ... well my son is 16 now, so 18 years.
When my H100 failed on my wife's 3960X I wired a phenom2's sink onto it with coathanger and tubing. It kept it under 72C at redline in folding@home. The H100 would hold it to 66C or less, the newer H110 was managing 59C. AMD knows heat, intel doesn't care.
