Re: Need a better cooling system
I was a network manager, until I retired. We had racks of equipment and mostly closed back racks. We had plenum air (raised computer flooring). If the cool air at the bottom is both not enough and not cold enough the equipment in the racks could/would over heat and the further up the rack the higher the temperature.
I suspect its even worse in a control room or wherever the equipment rack is in most recording studios. Very few have raised floor plenum air, just the ambient air of the room. It must be cold enough for the equipment or whatever you do to the PC for CPU cooling isn't really going to help.
