"do i need a CPU heatsink if i get a liquid cooling system"
With liquid cooling the part that goes on the CPU to cool it is called a "CPU Water-Block"
If you are going to use liquid cooling always use the liquid that is made specifically for it or "100% pure distilled water"
NEVER, for any reason, under any circumstance, put tap water or any kind of undistilled water in a liquid cooling system.
Distilled water has all of the minerals removed making it nonconductive so if some gets on the components it won't short them out.
The best way to get a good liquid cooling system is to buy a liquid cooling kit .
If you google it you can find reviews to determine which you think will best suit your needs.
