  • How effective are liquid-based coolant systems in processor cooling?

    I've never had the chance to work with one yet; approx. by how much percent do liquid cooling systems speed up processors? Are they worth the trouble of installation? Are there more effective and/or feasible methods of cooling available?

We spent $100,000 on these new units and duct work 3 years ago and now they are maxed out. We do use the hot and cold isle method. Since we continue to add more...

    I am looking for a cheap stand alone product to place between racks in a LAN room with hot isle cold isle configuration.
