I just spent 12 years (on a ten week contract) working in a big data center, and power use was a constant issue. Intel and AMD are making the CPUs deliver more performance per watt, and I'm really dubious that better cooling is going to be a big deal.
I'm old enough to remember SOS (Silicon On Saphire) and chips on diamond to get better cooling. I'm pretty sure the answer is not in more cooling, but in less power."
