High Heat Output Issue: Suggestions Please

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
In the office we have two workstations operating Axis Communication Surveillance on six 22'' screens. Set up is:

Left Tower:
Dell Precision T7500
NVIDIA Quadro FX 3800
Intel Xeon CPU
E5507 @ 2.27GHz
2.26GHz, 3.00 GB of RAM

Right Tower:
Dell Precision T7500
NVIDIA Quadro FX 3800
Intel Xeon CPU
E5630 @ 2.53GHz
2.53GHz, 3.00 GB of RAM

Both on their own Pro1500E Uninterruptible Power Supply

Now our office isn't that big. And the set up seems to deliver tons of heat. What is the best route to take to offer a less heat output without going water cooled? Cause it is toasty in the office and it isn't even summer yet.

What would be the cheapest route? Finally, would upgrading the CPU offer less heat output? Or would pushing more air with upgraded fans help the cooling process? Cause I'd figure that would just dump the heat from the tower into our office. I can understand if our images were choppy, what to upgrade but we didn't expect the heat delivered from the machines to heat up the office as much as it is.

Our windows are sealed, doors are required closed and the air is automated and doesn't pump much cool air in.

Any help would be appreciated. Cheapest isn't required, but requested. It's federal property so the budget is opened, but the cheapest and most realistic option is suggested. Thanks of reading.

(Miscategorized? Sorry, looked for available subjects didn't really see any that fit. Recommend thread placement if needed)

If they are in their original cases, I'd suggest getting cases that are better suited for cooling. Get a couple HAF 912's and add a 200 mm to the front, a 200 mm to the top and 120's for the rest. My 2cents.gif

Looked at the HAF 912 case. Impressive case. Everything will swap into from the T7500 into the HAF 912 easily? The IT Department would need to handle that task of work, since its company property. Again, the IT department isn't top notch I'm sure.

I would think so. It has quite a lot of room. It is fairly easy to just swap over from one case to another. I almost got the 912 for my HTPC. But I decided to just get a new case for my gaming rig and put htpc components into my old 922.

Even if the workstations are operating at a lower temperature do to higher rate of airflow, wouldn't all the heat dumped by the computers still have the office at the same high miserable temperature?

I've turned the screen monitors brightness down from 100% to 50% the other day. That seemed to help but I could be imagining it. It's 79 degrees Fahrenheit in here now. Bought a temp gauge to see results in the office. Feels a bit cooler....(still hot)

Unfortunately, heat will dump out into the office. Even if you water cooled it, the heat would have to go somewhere.

Sounds like it‘s time to talk to the building maintenance dept. The solution could be as simple as adding an extra exhaust fan or as complicated as adding a separate a/c system to your office.

Most office environments are usually kept at or around 70 degrees.

This is probably better suited for the Air Cooling forum...

The Dell Precision T7500 is a DP workstation, so the motherboard isn't going to be standard ATX and might not even be a standard form factor at all, and I know for a fact the PSU isn't standard ATX. As such you'll likely run into issues trying to transplant it into a better case. Even if you managed to do so, the heat isn't going to magically disappear, so ultimately you'll need better airflow/cooling in the room itself.

Yeah. This seems like a problem beyond just the set up of the PC. And I think I mentioned not sure where to categorize this at, sorry. Maybe Property Management will have some options besides the IT team. Maintenance options with HVAC as well. Without the workstation set up in here this room had the same temperature as the zone area. The zone area is a controlled HVAC within certain section in the building. I'm sure if we drop the temperature down to 60 or so it would be ~70 or so in here, but cold for all the other staff lol.
