basically the water is in its own enclosed system like in a car, The water never comes into contact with anything electrical it just runs through water blocks which contain a copper heat transfer plate that have a series of tiny channels for the water to run through.
Everything is pretty water tight and i dare say air tight these days, it may have been a bit sketchy once but now with compression fittings and high quality components being so common there are very few leaks that arent down to user dipshitness. Also most coolants and not electrically conductive when purchased but eventually they all pick up bits of crap from your system and become conductive over a long time. This basically means that as long as you leak test when you build it, with your system off but the pump running for a good amount of time you will be fine since you will spot any leaks before the fluid becomes conductive and your system will be off. Then it's simply a case of maintenance, check your coolant level in the resevoir from time to time and every year or so drain the system, clean the parts and rebuild and refill it. That maintenace isn't really an issue as anybody who actually builds a watercooling loop like this will likely be upgrading parts often anyway.

TL;DR - It's magic, trust me I'm an wizardengineer

Not quite sure with water, but with oil the parts can just be in it because oil isn't conductive

Water is a very poor conductor, it's just it usually has solutes like salt in it, and salt solutions are conductors. Water in coolant is pure water, which does not conduct.

Just like the cooling system in your car. Coolant is run through passages around the parts. The heat transfers to the water and away from the parts.
