Server Room Temperature

By MMarble ·
Does anybody know a good reference material site about the optimum operating environment for servers? I'm writing a report in a futile
attempt to expedite our cooling unit purchase. IT has been (literally) placed on the back burner again. Sigh...

The short, COLD.

We keep ours at about 70, we also use de-humidifiers and "noisy dust catchers" (other wise known as air filters)

I'm writing a report. I need concrete technical data regarding the effects of heat on electronics. My saying "We need to keep our server room colder" is ineffective when communicating with managers after massive budget cuts.

I have not been able to find definitive guides per se, although some books reference optimal tempeature for computers.

I found some articles that refernce the exact tempeature of 68 degrees.

BTW- I was just being a smart *** before.

This really boils down to common sense, kind of like, you get up and brush your teeth in the morning or put on deoderant.

There is really no "guide" that tells you to do it. You just know that it needs to be done because common sense and "passed down" knowledge tells you to do so.

Thanks for the info. and the time you spent researching it. I know it's common sense, but I'm working in an environment where everything I say has to be backed up with data before money gets spent.
