It's going to cost a heap to cool an Exascale system, perhaps then the
overhead of making bespoke racks for these things will make some sense.
But even then it'll take a lot of clever engineering to avoid the
issues that Jim mentioned; the capillary action of oil through
insulated wires hadn't occurred to me - that could be very messy!
