1. An information handling system comprising:
an information handling resource;
at least one fluidic conduit thermally coupled to the information handling resource and configured to convey a cooling liquid proximate to the information handling resource in order to cool the information handling resource;
an air mover support infrastructure comprising a plurality of bays, each bay of the plurality of bays configured to receive an air mover for cooling components of the information handling system; and
a liquid manifold sized and shaped to be received in at least one of the plurality of bays and received in a first bay of the plurality of bays, sized and shaped to create an air seal to minimize air flow through the first bay when received in the first bay, and configured to enable at least one fluidic conduit of the at least one fluidic conduit to fluidically couple to an external cooling system, wherein the external cooling system is configured to deliver cooled cooling liquid to the information handling system, receive warmed cooling liquid from the information handling system, and cool the warmed cooling liquid.
