I think real watercooling is, but they sell kits now that are no harder to install than a regular CPU fan/heatsink. Although I don't know how you define "mainstream" pc gamers, so perhaps you would think even that was beyond what they would do.
For a person capable of building a system it isn't beyond them. For the tons of people on the forums that go "can my system run X game" or first time builders which is lot of people I can see them getting tripped up. It is kind of hassle you don't really need to go through if you don't plan on overclocking.
