    I do, but don't think it's necessary except for the video card.
    I went a bit crazy, built a wet system where the coolant actually
    flows across the top of the processor itself.
    The reservoir is a 5 gallon bucket in a small chest freezer.

    If I had to do it again, as a graphics computer, I think I'd build
    an air cooled system with a factory water cooled video card.

    Other people will have different opinions.

    I am planning to build a Core i7 8700K system with a GTX 1070 card.  The 8th generation Intel processors are known to run hotter than the earlier generations.  I have no plans to watercool, though I did select my case based on the thermal performance measurements in Tom's Hardware.  I do not overclock, as I do not feel it is wise to compromise my component life and warranties for minor performance gains.  Reliability is my first prioity.
