Following our discussions about oil cooling and efficient data centres, here's a good article on the new facility
For the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory  (*)

NERL looked at using mineral oil and other coolants to get rid of the heat in the cluster,

but Hammond said he did not want to have to "get into a pair of coveralls to service a machine."



(*) ps. talking about renewables, the first episode of the new Dallas aired in the UK last night.
Renewables are the new oil.
Someone here will know - was that a real specimen of methane hydrate which Christopher set light to at the cattlemen's club table?
