There are GOOD air cooled aftermarket heat sink/fan combinations by companies that include Noctua & Coolmaster that are VERY good at keeping all but the most extreme overclocked CPU's cool. They are Better than self contained liquid systems and very close to anything except the very expensive complex systems that require constant monitoring, AND they are much more fail safe than a liquid system because if a fan fails, you still have the massive heat sink and cooling fins, on a liquid system if either the pump fails or the liquid leaks out then you have a couple tenths of a second before massive overheating happens.
Stock coolers are more than enough at stock settings and a good tower cooler with a large fan is plenty for everyday overclocking and gaming at a high level.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Stick with standard air cooling. Water cooling is a waste of money.

You are going off the deep end. This is your first build. There is no need for water cooling. We have said this before but you don't seem to believe it. IF you decide to overclock then you can explore better cooling than the stock coolers. Most likely you won't even need to do that.

Fine, but if I ever decide to build a second one, is it ok that I get hardline cooling?

You can do whatever you want. Nothing says you have to follow the advice you're being given. Some people have to learn the hard way.

What I don't get is you said you didn't want to spend any extra for a better graphics card, but suddenly $300-400 for a hardline water cooling kit is OK? If you've got that kind of money to toss around, why not get a better motherboard, CPU, & more RAM instead? At least those parts will give better performance.

There's no reason not to jump off the deep end if you really want to. That said, if you know someone in the HVAC, refrigeration, or automotive maintenance fields, you might want to ask them for pointers before installing a water based system.

Riider: Oh really? I didn’t even search up the prices yet, I didn’t know it was that expensive, I was just asking for some advice on where to get started.
