On Chip Water Cooling

If you think electronics and water don't mix, think again.

IBM is researching the use of watercooling on a much smaller scale, on the chips itself.

Their new Power 575 supercomputer uses 448 5GHz POWER6 processors and ill be the first system to use their "Hydro Cluster" chip-level water-cooling to keep it from overheating.

As for the excess heat, it will be put to good use instead of being wasted.
