Indeed... it's even easier than that.   Cooling is as easy as making
an entire room emit heat
to the outside environment at an average rate that is consistently
faster than heat transfer
into the room from all sources.

There are many ways of accomplishing that.      One of the best ways
is to put your room
in an already cold environment,   in  contact with an excellent
thermal conductor.

For example...   server room  in the arctic region,    at  the bottom
of  some lake.
Probably with all air removed from the environment, and a sound
thermal medium such as oil
pumped in in its place (make sure to use SSDs for all storage and no
mechanical devices).
