Being from the Coachella Valley (Palm Springs, CA area) I'd have to toss the referee flag onto the field on this statement: "(most US locations never see 90 hours of 113 degree heat over the course of a year)." 

We experience TRIPLE digit for weeks on end, much of which is in the hundred+teens or TWENTIES! And since 90hrs equates to less than four days time, we bust that wall down multiple times every year!

We also have all Dell servers, 1U & 2U, currently in a 'closet' shared with the boxed up financial hard copy backup and filing cabinets.  The room AVERAGES between 80F & 90F even though there's a stand-alone room A/C unit blowing directly on the server rack. (exhausted to the outside)...and I can personally attest to the fortitude of Dell servers as we have yet to loose one in the past ten years! (two IBM servers and a 'home built' server did not fair as well under the brutal assault of higher than recommended temps)

Just so I don't get a lot of 'you must be stupid!' responses concerning our choice of server locations, be assured that this was an inheirted sitiuation and is being rectified for the new Dell servers we ordered and received this week. Setting up a new rack for the new servers (10 yrs WAS long enough for the old ones though, right?) in their own temperature controlled room, set at a nice 69-72F. I'm thinking of moving in there myself! LOL.

Misspelled warranty in the post, FYI

But to be fair, he DID spell it right two of the four times it was used...that's batting 500%, that ain't but half bad!

LOL.

.500 would put me in the baseball hall of fame, right? So I'm still happy. And I spelled it right in the title, so bumps me up to 3 out of 5 times!

Thanks, btw. You think spell-check would've caught the typos caused by my caffeine-riddled fingers, but alas. Maybe it's turned off...

Sorry bro...I DID count the Title. I just didn't want to point THAT close to the boo-boo's ;)
