It also reduces the power consumption of your rig as cooler components use less power. A OC'd GPU at 45C load (common WC temperature) vs. 95C load (common air cooling temp) uses about 15% less power. If you have a folding farm investing in watercooling actually saves you money of the course of a couple of years. Of course it pays itself back even quicker if you live somewhere like Germany with crazy expensive electricity costs.
