The one thing that /always/ concerns me about the DIY ones is that there's no longer much isolation between the mains side and the low voltage side. Normally the transformer ensures there's no connection between the two, but DIY water cooling usually ends up coupling the two together. At that point, you're relying on a single bit of thermal pad to keep 300V DC away from your system.
