1. A cooling system for a heat-generating component, comprising:

  • a double-sided chassis adapted to mount a pump configured to circulate a cooling liquid, the pump comprising a stator and an impeller, the impeller being positioned in a recess on the underside of the chassis and the stator being positioned on the upper side of the chassis and isolated from the cooling liquid;

    a reservoir adapted to pass the cooling liquid therethrough, the reservoir including;

    a pump chamber formed by the recess and at least an impeller cover having one or more passages for the cooling liquid to pass through;

    a thermal exchange chamber, the pump chamber and the thermal exchange chamber being separate chambers that are fluidly coupled together by the one or more passages; and

    a heat-exchanging interface, the heat-exchanging interface forming a boundary wall of the thermal exchange chamber, and configured to be placed in thermal contact with a surface of the heat-generating component; and

    a heat radiator fluidly coupled to the reservoir and configured to dissipate heat from the cooling liquid.
