Chipset water block only for aesthetics?

I just got my r5e motherboard for my loop. However the water cooling brands are taking their sweet time developing the blocks. Besides aesthetics. Is there an improvement on overclock if I wait on it or not?

You do not want to overclock the chipset at all. Gets unstable real fast and is not worth it at all. It's purely a cosmetic thing really. The only practical gain is lower temperature on the chipset which increases the longevity.

This is why you should not get an FX CPU for ANY scenario other than rendering on a budget http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/286142-fx-8350-r9-290-psu-requirements/?p=3892901 http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/266481-an-issue-with-people-bashing-the-fx-cpus/?p=3620861

If your overclocking the bus then yes cooling your chipset is gonna help a little bit.  But if your just overclocking individual components then its not of concern.

Please spend as much time writing your question, as you want me to spend responding to it.  Take some time, and explain your issue, please!

So just adjusting multiplier passive cooling is more than enough?
