IBM launches a liquid cooled supercomputer for those with computer over-heating problems. The technique involves doubling the space heater that lowers the carbon footprint and cuts down the usage of energy by 40 percent.

The supercomputer called Aquasar, analyses fluid dynamics while providing heat for the building. It consists of two IBM BladeCenter servers in one rack. It has a liquid cooled processor with small pipelines and dubbed microchannel coolers. These pipelines allow the coolant to be pumped from the processor to the building's under-floor radiant heating system, where a heat exchange will remove the heat from the water and pump cool water back to the server.
