Thats for you to decide, I have seen a couple people lately in the forums say their delid didnt give them a very good temp reduction but they could have screwed it up cause most people get a 10-15 degree reduction with delid. I want to delid just havent got around to it yet.
I think watercooling is definately the way to go, at least with the cpu if not the gpu also!
