Liquid submersed servers

Here's an interesting technology - keep your servers cool by immersing them in dielectric liquid. It cools better than air by a factor of 1300. These server blades can be rack mounted in a cabinet yet the heat is removed through a pipe system at the back of the rack.
This won't totally deal with the heat in a data centre, but it could help with the compute heat load of intense financial calculations. It should help increase the cooling efficiency of the data centre for those servers.

Edit 2nd March 2012: I saw these Data Centre World 2012 . They are being marketed in the UK by Boston. Apparently according to the guy on the stand they are "flying off the shelves", but they would say that wouldn't they?
