Canada’s Biggest Radio Telescope to use CoolIT Systems Liquid Cooling

With support from CoolIT Systems with a custom Direct Liquid Cooling solution, the CHIME telescope will map out the entire northern sky each day, aiming to constrain the properties and evolution of Dark Energy over a broad swath of cosmic history. “The liquid cooled system consists of 256 rack-mounted General Technics GT0180 custom 4u servers housed in 26 racks managed by CoolIT Systems Rack DCLC CHx40 Heat Exchange Modules. The custom direct contact cooling loops manage 100% of heat generated by the single Intel Xeon E5 2620v3 CPUs and the Dual AMD FirePro S9300x2 GPUs, while simultaneously pulling heat from the ambient air into the liquid coolant loops.”
