    OVH servers are water cooled but apparently there was a water coolant leak in their Paris datacenter What did OVH learn from 24-hour outage? Water and servers do not mix

    Yikes!
    Last time I was building my PC I was thinking about doing water cooling. Seemed like it would be too much of a hassle.

    I settled with just a Corsair H100i CPU liquid cooler.
