At the pace of power increase soon servers will require liquid nitrogen cooling...

Probably it is required to change the oil often and will there be a pollution in the air? An exhaust pipe is required?

This is very interesting. The oil submersion of server heat generating components allows efficient heat transfer at 40C vs air which has to be much lower temperature to efficiently transfer heat. Keeping coolant down to 40C is much easier, requires much less energy, than say 24C for air.
