i really doubt it, it may be heat pipe cooled, which uses liquid contained in metal tubes... but thats not liquid cooling

theres a couple of water cooled psu's on the market there is one which has no moving parts and is basically a cooling tank with a lil waterproof box suspended inside with the cooling liquid travelling around it. It looked absolutely awesome definately the one i would choose it was made by a good company aswell so wasnt bad quality.

Just a waste of money, it can and has been done but there's no point in it at all.
