Liquid Cooling

Hot-Water Cooled Supercomputer

June 25th, 2012


The first commercially available computer system that is cooled with hot water rather than air was unveiled at the Leibniz Supercomputer Centre in Munich. The IBM iDataplex system removes heat 4,000 times more efficiently than air-cooled systems using a new form of IBM’s hot-water cooling technology. It cools active components in the system such as processors and memory modules with temperatures that can reach as high as 113 degrees Fahrenheit. The hot-water cooling eliminates the need for conventional cooling systems and can therefore halve the carbon footprint.
