Water cooled server cabinet system

Using a water cooling system for your personal computer has been around for a while. But it isn’t until recently that you can cool down your servers using water. Panduit Corp recently released a new Net-Access Server Cabinet System that features IBM's Rear Door Heat Exchanger Water-Cooling Technology. It is basically a five-inch deep cooling door that uses chilled water to dissipate heat generated from the servers. This can easily reduce server heat output by up to 55%.

Gartner recently released a report that says that water can carry, unbelievable, 3500 times more hear than air at sea level. This can considerably improve the temperature of data centres with more cooling efficiency.

That's new to me. I never thought we can use water to cool our servers. I really need to learn more about this system. Do you think it's worth the hassle? It's quite expensive but i think that money can be a good investment considering that we won't have any burned servers.
