AMD CPU's can happily run around 80*C [ although its not a good idea to let them get that hot ]. They tend to run hot due to the high number of workings they do per clock cycle.

I wouldn't worry too much about having it at 49*C. If you are worried about it, you could change your BIOS settings for your PC to shut itself down at around 65*C as a precaution.

Depending on the standard of water cooling system use, the drop in temp could be between insignificant to 10/20*C [ in certain cases ].

Either way, it would decrease them temps alot compared to standard HSF cooling.

Seems pretty reasonable.

If all you want if a few extra degress off your load temp and quieter cooling ... that will be more than sufficiant.
