Liquid Cooling

Why it Works better

Water can carry away 3000x more heat than air. Data centers need liquid cooling when the power density gets too high for air cooling. This might be 50-100 kW per rack depending on the server power and the data center temperature. As the power and the temperature go up, liquid becomes essential. Flowing water through expensive servers seems risky, but it’s safe if your liquid cooling system runs under negative pressure. With the Chilldyne system, liquid cooling is less expensive because the server side components are failure tolerant instead of failure proof, and failure proof components are expensive.

The promise of liquid cooling for data centers

The liquid cooled data center of the future will be quiet, warm dense and efficient. The cold, windy and noisy air cooled data centers will fade away. We have developed the Chilldyne negative pressure system to make the transition easy.  We use direct to the chip liquid cooling because it has the best (lowest) thermal resistance. That means that you can cool the highest power chips most effectively with the highest temperature water. In the data center, thousands of servers need to be connected to a plumbing system that carries the heat outdoors. There are many places for leaks to develop, but with the Chilldyne system, leaks don’t cause damage or downtime. This means that the liquid cooled data center will have better uptime than the air cooled ones of the past.

Still Unsure About Liquid Cooling?

Moving away from traditional HVAC is a big step. If you want to know more about the science and its application, click the button below.

Greater Performance

Run CPUs/GPUs at higher clock speeds – more performance from the same hardware. The lower temperature delivered by liquid cooling allows more heat to be removed from the device, which allows more electrical power to be put in without tripping governors or hardware damage resulting in higher clock speeds.

Less Power

Studies have shown that the Cool-Flo soluiton reduces electrical usage by 15-30% by reducing CPU power, fan power, HVAC power and CDU power needs. Power that can be rechanneled back into performance of existing hardware.
