A sprinkler leak in a computer room is bad, but just imagine the damage
that seawater would do.  Even a fine mist would be dreadful, as it would
be sucked through the cases and the droplets would either short things
out immediately, or lead inevitably to corroded metal throughout the
machine.
To use seawater to cool a room safely it would have to be well isolated,
exchanging heat with a loop of much more innocuous fluid that actually
enters the room.
