The new(er) intel chips might prove different, but I've found even high quality air tends to run out of steam just as I'm getting to that next level. Folks who do extreme cooling beyond WC will say the same thing about why they chose it over water.

I'm sure I'd have never been able to run my Q6600 at 3.8G stable on air, but if pressed will admit that I probably could have survived with the 3.6G I'd have been able to get on air. It's not about "needing" WC, it's about WC allowing me to push the limit just a little bit higher (not that much) than I could with air.
I moved to water for the same reason as wilson, with water I am able to squeeze a few more mhz outta my cpu.
