Schroff makes a rack, the VARISTAR LHX20, that has a water/air heat
exchanger in the side. The doors are sealed so all of the noise stays
inside. The heat exchanger gets plumbed into the buildings HVAC
system and will dissipate 20,000 Watts. They also make a -48V powered
version for use with the Sun CT900 ATCA Blade Servers.

>help cut down on the noise coming from the rack? One main reason
>I've even considered the doors was to try to quiet the whole thing
>down a tad... since it's in my office, it would be nice. White
>noise doesn't really bother me, but would be nice to be quieter.
>I did a little looking on-line to see about the ventilated doors
>they make and was wondering if I "converted" one of the two doors I
>have to a "ventilated" one (Mr. Drill say "hi" to Mr. Door....)
>would it basically negate the sound dampening effect of the door?
