Unlike traditional air-cooled devices and common types of liquid cooling for enthusiast PCs, the A1066I’s electrical components are submerged in a special dielectric fluid that carries heat away directly from the boards.
Dielectric fluids are specially engineered to insulate the components and avoid the corrosion damage and short circuiting that would occur with standard water or other types of fluids. This is also different from liquid cooling based on water blocks, where a special heat exchanger isolates the water from the components.
The A1066I is a large container device that can hold up to 90 immersion-cooled units. Canaan claims that each unit produces 50 Terahashes per second for a power consumption of 3400 watts, while each tank reaches up to 7200 TH/s and 306 kilowatts of energy usage when fully stacked.
