  • How effective are liquid-based coolant systems in processor cooling?

    I've never had the chance to work with one yet; approx. by how much percent do liquid cooling systems speed up processors? Are they worth the trouble of installation? Are there more effective and/or feasible methods of cooling available?

  • High humidity in the Data Center. Any advice?

    We are having an issue with humidity levels of 65% in our Data Center. I know we should be below 55% but I was wondering if our level will really hurt the equipment. Do i need to replace my overhead coolers or can I live with this? Thanks

  • Upper power & cooling limits in the Data Center

    Hi, do we still consider 85% as the recommended upper limit in the data centre with regards to power & cooling. I know this was a main driver from Gartner, but with increased efficiencies in M&E hardware has this view changed at all towards a higher recommended set point?   Thanks, Joe Campbell
