A new 'wet computer' is being tested by scientists at Leeds University. The system, designed and built by Iceotope in Rotherham, uses a specially engineered fluid to keep the electronics inside the computer server cool, rather than fans which are both noisy and costly to run.
Scientists hope the new system could slash the carbon footprint of internet data centres by dramatically reducing the amount of electricity they need to use. The system's designers estimate that power consumption for cooling could be cut by between 80% and 97%.
