    Make sure the infrastructure cabling is not in the cabinet against the wall as it means cabling can only go one way and getting to the other end cab is a pain.

    I'd stick with that one. Always better to have the air con mounted at least half way up the wall and blowing low directly at the front of the cabs so that the warm air automatically get's cirulated above the cabs into the intake at the top of the air con.

    Mind you - If I was building a new server room from scratch, I would not be relying on air con. Be using a small air con pointing at the front of the cab to provide constant temperature controlled intake, and sealed-back cabs with direct cabinet ventilation to the outside for a LARGE saving in the amount of air con needed. Kind of like a modified version of dhick's "cold aisle" plan except instead of having an actual cold isle in the room, the cold isle becomes the back 20% of each cab and all warm air gets sucked straight up and outside.

    You lucky dab - i'd kill for a new server room.

    AButters:

    You should see my old server room after the flood! I think it shocked them into getting a new room :-)

    I have been thinking about CAT5E/6 cabling for the server, and was thinking of using patch panels to make it neat and tidy, would this be over the top?
