    Fans for a Cabinet

    Righty ho, now I have replaced 4 of our switches I have noticed that these new ones of ours don't have internal fans - with two in a all cabinet with some POE staff etc they are running a tad hot. The safe temp is 40/104 - I have a nasty feeling they will get VERY close to that in a closed cabinet.
    Anyone got any suggestions as to a good supplier of some cabinet fans ?
    Also - best place to mount them ? Top, Middle or Bottom..... ;-)

    I'm not sure where the best place to buy the fans from is... I do know that you should extract the (hot) air out of the top of the cab and maybe suck some (cool) air into the bottom or sides.

    Videk is a good place to start for anything like this.

    Fans are here - the 1U general purpose one might be best (because it will fit any cab)

    Fabulous company, excellent service, not bad prices!
