All this for 3% clock increase... Find water coolers pretty useless for video cards. Most them overclock pretty badly and when they do its not worth the hassle.

Water cooling allows your rig to run more quietly in addition to clocking higher. Plus, I find water cooled rigs to be more aesthetically pleasing (if done properly). It's a hassle if you don't like to tinker with things, but it's fun for an enthusiast.

'Watercooling' is not a pseudonym for 'overclocking', so let's make sure we're not making this assumption. You can certainly do one without the other.

Also, with a full cover watercooling block, you might see 30-50% reduction in core load temperatures on your GPU. It's rather substantial to go from seeing 85C temps down to seeing 45C temps at load with a proper loop setup.
