Hence becoming a situation where heat would be an issue... my point wasn't to say that liquid cooling is worthless, but that it doesn't offer a stability benefit just because it's liquid. If you're not at a premium for space and you're not overclocking, a water cooled system is probably overkill.

......
Also, there's always the option of going with solar power to run the servers/clusters. Some States/Cities/Counties will cover almost half the cost of the solar setup if it's connected to the grid. This depends on size and other factors of course.

Scenario
I had a solar system installed which was surpassing my daily needs and therefore I decided to have it connected to the grid. The city payed/reimbursed 45% of the cost for connecting the solar system to the grid. My yearly power bill's only $15.00. Etc...

The downside's the short-term cost ([est.] $10,000.00-S350,000.00) of getting the system and having it installed. The system does pay for itself, but most people cannot afford a system this large. "Wow! I could never afford that!" Well, it depends on where you live, how much the panels cost, how many you need, and etc... The system I'm referring to is rather large. lol

This is just me pointing out something, but if you shoot down every comment made by us, opinion or otherwise, I know that in the future, I am less likely to be involved, as you either obviously know more than I do, or you just don't care about other opinions.

This is a general comment and not one made to offend, so keep that in mind when you read this..
