    Ive just started a new job as the I.T. guy at a company, and I don't know what temperature the room with the servers in should be.

    Ive got the air con set at 19c, but I don't know if it should be colder.

    There are 3x HP servers with dual 3.6ghz zeon processors, 3.5GB ram etc.. and there is a large switch system in the corner.

    What temperature should I be keeping that lot at?

    Thanks

    All I can tell you is that our server room at our office feels cold.

    Prob. something like 10-14 degrees C...

    Mind you, who's paying the air-con bills? :)

    If you feel cold as soon as you walk into your server room then you know its cold enough.

    lol.. certainly not me!

    I was just concerned that making it too cold would not be good for the hardware..

    does anyone else have a second opinion?
