The further your water block and CPU are cooled below the ambient temperature inside your case, the greater the degree of condensation. The humidity in your PC room is a factor also. The higher the humidity, the greater the degree of condensation. You almost have to set it up, run it and see how fast condensation becomes an issue, to determine the degree of your problem. The necessary corrective actions for preventing condensation are well documented on the Web. If you go with chilled water, you will have no problem finding ideas and methods for implementing condensation preventive measures.
