HP has instituted a liquid cooling technology option on its HP Z800 and Z400 Workstations. The new liquid cooling feature is designed for workstation users who want to lower acoustic noise at all operating states.

In lab tests, liquid-cooled workstations provided up to an 8-decibel reduction in noise, compared to their air-cooled counterparts. This is significant, since research shows that humans perceive a 10-decibel decrease in noise as a 50% drop in volume.

Research has shown that common office noises, including computer noises, disrupt cognitive function and induce stress and fatigue.
Office noise exposure has been shown to disrupt short term memory, interfere with mathematical computation and negatively impact decision making.
