What is the recommended room temperature for a room that contains PC's. I know someone out there will know, and can point me in the direction of where I could read this info online.

Thanks in advance

Realistically, 60 degrees F to 80 degrees F.

Below 60 degrees, you may have problems with drives spinning up and / or condensation.

Above 80 degrees F, and you need to have VERY good case cooling to keep things from over-heating.

I have seen hard drives generate large numbers of read errors at a room temperature of 85 degrees F.

On the cool side, if the PC is running when the temperature drops, you may be able to keep running down to around 40 degrees F as long as the humidity is low enough so moisture does not condense inside the PC.

All electronics components are certified at 18?c.

Sure, you won't maintain easily this temperature, but try to stay between 20 and 30 ?C.

I once had a Loose Cannon that kept screwing with my system, and would always jack it up! I later found out he hated warm rooms, so I rigged the thermomiter to stay above 84 degrees and my problems were solved. The system ran fine from then on causehe avoided going in the room from then on.
