    Try closing the window - if you have the a/c running with an open window, it is trying to cool down the air outside. a/c works much better in a sealed room.
    Oh i dont bother with the air-con because its rubbish, an open window way up in the air does a better job. Our a/c isnt technically one, its dehumidifier with a cooling function and needs an outlet pipe for its exhaust which blows hot air. If the room did get hot the pipe would go out of the window. On a hot day (~25C) I can keep the server room at about 22C

    7 Servers, UPS, full size floor cab, 2 desks, 2 people, 2 filing cab, 1 shelving unit, 1 portable air-con all in 1.5x10m room lol.. it's cosy.

    Been pushing for a new one for ages but as per normal there is no room for us anywhere else... even though i have come up with 3 different options that take into account loosing a classroom for my office.

    Just a backup server and a couple of test servers in our office.

    Server room is in another building, hardly ever go in there.

    I've attached a few pic and the layout to make you jealous of all our office space :-)

    @steve - I'd be shot if I had that many 'spare' computers or monitors lying around. If I ever have more than 2 in my office I get teachers saying 'Why do you get so many computers' - completely missing the point.

    @steve you have a meeting table! Wow, mines gather round the heap of junk in the middle of the office or nick a classroom. As for PCs I have 6 to go at in my room so plenty to go at and you should always have a spare screen or 10 and pc or two incase the heads blows up or the Bursars.

    What he doesn't say is that the meeting table is a collection of desktop PC cases arranged in a table-like formation - the camera cleverley doesn't show this
