Oh yeah. A swamp cooler will give you 20 degrees of cooling most days, and on hot dry days in mid summer it will do better than that. Finding soft water to run it might be a problem.

It works very well - that's one of the reasons why Facebook located their data center in Prineville:

"If the air is too cold for the servers, they can heat it up — using hot air that has already come off the servers themselves — and if the outside air is too hot, they can cool it down with evaporated water."
