So I got a new pc with
Liquid CPU Cooling System [Intel] - Standard 120mm Fan
I am unfamiliar with liquid cooling units and have avoided them for a while but figure enough time has past where they are more reliable. So my question is with this particular unit what maintenance do I have to do with it?

Is it something like this
If so only thing that would need doing would be to keep the fan clean every 2-3 months when doing the whole system out

No they are sealed units. Specifically designed to be maintenance free. Apart from cleaning the radiator and fan of dust that is.

As keefy has pointed out with closed loop coolers you don't need to do any maintenance other than blowing the dust out of the fan/radiator but that should be part of your maintenance anyway.
I need to change the fluid in my computer every 6 months and put a silver kill coil in it.
edit: I will add though. Closed loop coolers are known for being a bit overpriced. You can get the same results with a high end air cooler for cheaper and it will probably be quieter. Just something to think about
edit 2: Clearly i lack reading comprehension. I missed the part where it said you have it already
Yeah, just use a compressed air can and blow the dust out of the radiator every few months and you'll be good to go
