    No. But tap water contains minerals and other impurities that not only make the water conductive (bad if you get a leak, even though that is rare), but also make the water more corrosive. Over time this can lead to rust or mineral buidup in places.

    I would not suggest using tap water.

    should be plenty for a 3.2ghz.... in fact, should be plenty for about any processor you can get for a PC today.

    Just for the info of those reading, some water cooling units perform worse than a good HSF combo, but these are usually the cheapest watercooling units out there. Do a little reading online before investing in a bargain watercooling unit.
