Power densities in bitcoin mining data centers are radically higher than in data centers that house traditional IT equipment. Some data centers have found that by bringing bitcoin mining ASICs, or Application Specific Integrated Circuits, in direct contact with dielectric fluid allows more mining horsepower in a square foot of data center space.
According to Data Center Knowledge, a data center being built in Georgia (the former Soviet Republic) has one of the world’s most unusual approaches to liquid cooling: submerging servers in fluid completely.
“When servers submerged in a specially designed tub heat up, the liquid starts boiling, and the resulting gas carries the heat up. Once above the surface, it reaches water-cooled cooling coils, turns back into liquid as its temperature drops, and falls back into the tank,” Data Center Knowledge reported.
“The power-density advantages of direct liquid cooling and especially immersion cooling are clear. What is unclear is whether it will eventually become useful in more mainstream computing scenarios,” Data Center Knowledge added.
