You've done whole room water cooling. Now we need whole office water cooling, where every single thing in the building is water cooled...

This certainly isn't the only time water cooling has been done in enterprise hardware. Theres purpose built self contained 42u racks that use water heat exchangers and it used to be available on IBM mainframes as well. Fun stuff!
