Well, I can only run the challenge XL in the wintertime when I can open the
window (it can get to -40C in the winter here) :) Between the Challenge and
the power series racks there is enough noise that they are in a separate
room. Ive thought about putting an air-conditioner in the window for the
summer, but that costs even more $. Dave - how do you deal with the heat
problem with your big machines??
