Submission + - Supercomputer Cools Off Using Groundwater (informationweek.com)

gManZboy writes: "The Department of Energy is no stranger to supercomputers, and its Pacific Northwest National Lab has proven that it can continue to be an innovator in the field by using what the lab calls a unique groundwater-fed cooling system in the lab's newest supercomputer, Olympus.

The novel cooling system translates normal groundwater into big savings for the new 162 teraflop supercomputer, which is being used in energy, chemical, and fluid dynamics research.

The setup translates into 70% less energy use than traditionally cooled systems."
