I went custom water, because in 40C ambients PC go whirrrrr every summer.
'Only mad dogs and Englishmen' (I'm originally from England, so the comment is more aimed at myself than anyone else).
It can also reach 40°C ambient out here but my concern is more for the capacitors than the chips, so I stuck with air cooling and hardened the power supply by replacing the capacitors.
