Default chipset blocks

Not sure if this has been discussed much, but is water cooling the voltage regulators and chipset on the Z87 motherboards needed at all? Or is it more for extreme over clocking and looks?
Slowly putting together a system and am now currently deciding on a z87 board and if cooling the board is going to help with board life and possible higher over clock then I will need to get something that will accept a full cover block. If not, then it's one less thing I have to budget for

Thanks all

Definitely not needed. The mosfets barely even run warm from my experience. The PCH runs a tad warm but still not hot enough to warrant water cooling.
