Photos: IBM iDataPlex keeps cool without AC

IBM claims its new iDataPlex servers will use 40 percent less energy and run 5 times faster than current models using the same space. Best of all, IBM says no air conditioning is required with its water-cooled version.

The iDataPlex is made to order and comes in 22 flavors with a menu of networking, switch, storage and server options. This is the iDataPlex DX340 server.
