It doesn't matter if you're on water or not.
Heat/dissipation has absolutely 0 to do with the hardware load on your moffsets...Thermally, maybe but, cooling has VERY little effect on voltage transferring etc.
1.05 is the max "safe" voltage for the card which, was noted in March 11.
I've had 5, 590's blown up 3 and all 3 were blown going above 1.05 ~ The VRM load just can't be handled by the hardware on the card.
I don't know in what world water-cooling somehow dissipates the load on VRM's but, as I said, I don't have a 590 anymore, don't work for a company that uses any and if you want to blow up your own, that's fine...But, 1.05 is the max safe and if you go above that, you do so at your own risk...
So have at it
