Microsoft uses boiling liquid to cool data centres
Microsoft is experimenting with a liquid boiling technique to cool its data centres. Servers are stored in a "bath" of liquid which is specially formulated to boil at low temperatures. The boiling effect carries away heat from Microsoft's processors, saving on the energy and water used by conventional cooling methods. This technique has previously been used by cryptocurrency miners.
