You can pack more wattage (and thus more capacity to generate heat) in a tighter space with liquid cooling than with air cooling. Beyond a certain level of performance, air cooling is no longer a viable option. However, for the time being, air cooling is more than sufficient for most people.
I would agree with this.

As well as Water Cooling is by far the most effective solution. Theres no argument or doubt here.

My only point was simply:
1) its not for everyone.
2) Cheap low-end Water Clooling setups are likely not worth the effort over Air.

I would suggest doing some extensive research on your own. A couple of articles on the basics.

This one is 3 years old but still worth a look A Beginner's Guide For WaterCooling Your PC : Introduction

If you have to ask what parts can be Watercooled then you definitely need to spend some time familiarizing yourself with what is available, cost, your ability to install it and the reward.

As you've received about all the information you should need already, I just thought you might want to do some searching on your own. In most cases you might even need to replace your system case to one that incorporates Watercooling in it's original design. $$

My point being it can get expensive, and unless you have a high skill ability it can get tedious and a bit difficult to install.
