|Server Power Reduction Through On-Chip Liquid Cooling|
|Keywords: Liquid Cooling, Server, power reduction|
|For many years thermal management has continued to depend on air based heatsink-fan applications. Through the demand for "over-clocked" processors in the high performance desktop, sealed liquid cooling systems have become mainstream and now demonstrate the performance and reliability necessary to be viable options for the datacenter server. As reducing power consumption of datacenters becomes increasingly important, every aspect of the server becomes an opportunity to optimize power efficiency. In this session, the successful development of a 1U liquid cooling system is showcased with the design goal of reducing total power consumption of the server while accommodating additional design considerations for system life, dimensional constraints, manufacturability, cpu power headroom and Cost.|
