OT, but might be of interest to some, water 
cooling is actually used on some large power 
generators. Literally, the copper conductors are 
hollow and water is pumped through them. So water 
+ several thousand volts !

However, the water they use is VERY carefully 
de-ionised (ie very pure) so it is non-conductive.
