While our rack mountable projects are still confidential and we can’t publish any photos, have a look at the gallery in the Building Immersion-1 page. And while we do indeed use glass for small immersion cooling demo setups, rest assured that our finished immersion… Read More



Understand Immersion Cooling (PDF presentations)

Pictured here is the Immersion-1 FPGA cluster and Xeon Phi Immersion Cooling Concept shown at the HPCC Supercomputer Conference 2013. We’ve been working behind closed doors for a long time, but only recently we have been asked to come out and prepare a couple of presentations about the advantages and benefits of passive 2-phase immersion cooling,… Read More
