This OEM customer is Dell, who will start offering liquid cooling in their high-end Precision workstations in the near future.

That could be a very expensive lesson.

Good, maybe Dell's workstations will cease to be the cooling nightmare they've always been. But this technology should have been implemented years ago, before Dell became a joke among knowledgeable system builders. Not that it would have saved Dell from obscurity, that's been inevitable since their decision to make their PCs with proprietary components and charge outrageous prices for upgrade/replacement parts. I can build a complete superior PC for what they charge for a 1TB hard drive upgrade ($600+).
