HP, maker of all things bland, has decided to spice up their rack-mounted server line with some nice water-cooled action. This setup, which is entirely self-contained so some Doom-addled sysadmin won't fall over it at 3 am and spill hot juices on your Lotus Notes server, is for server farms only, proving once again that HP doesn't know what's cool.

The kit will only fit on HP's 10000 G2 Universal Rack, a $1,200 rack system and requires a source of chilled water. Finally, it can communicate with HP's administration software and warn of impending meltdowns.
