    Because although the room may be that cold, the internal computer parts are not. ours is set to 19-21. 35 degrees may translate to 40 degrees case temp and 50 degrees CPU temp (depending on loads of factors)
    ^This

    I think I once read 30c was about the max after that RM said it voided the warranty. Running components hot stresses them and reduces their lifespan. Ours sits around the 20c mark unless I'm working in there and feeling cold then it might get turned up a few degrees.

    The fans will spin faster at this temp and require replacements sooner.
    ^And the noise it makes will send you deaf!

    Other things to consider is how you deal with A/C failure. In some places I have seen environment cards used with the UPSen to shut things down when too hot, but for those relying on being able to deal with issues on a direct "run to the server room" sort of action then a lower temperature can give a bit more time to deal with the issue.

    It's is all about risk and impact.

    22 in ours for the reason of not trying to ultra cool it and that consistency is better.

    20 in ours, old servers with very old 15k SCSI disks are getting nice cool air for as long as they live!

    We had a power cut in my last school, air con didn't kick in but the servers were on UPS so stayed on. The following morning we were in Mid Summer Egypt remperatures. We did have 26 blade servers though. I didn't see it but my NM said it was 42...

    Agree with Tony, why waste money, keep it a steady 25 ish

    I keep changing the setting to 22-24, comfortable working temperature. Though someone else keeps turning it down all the time to 18-19oC which is just a complete and utter waste of electricity >_<
