    I have two file servers here in my office that I need to do something with so that it doesnt contribute to the fact that its already very warm in here. Anyone got any suggestions on something I can get to store them in so that they dont cause more heat in here? Or am i just shit of out luck?

    Try to vent them to the outside?

    Use a small portable A/C unit to cool them...maybe duct in some of the cold air?

    i was thinking of doing that, for the file servers and for my main PC. Fall is coming soon, so i may do it then. If anything I can do something when i get my new mini fridge.

    honestly a mini-fridge will create more heat.

    simple laws of physics. the energy used to cool the inside of the fridge creates more heat that is exhausted into the room. so unless you then vent the exhaust from the fridge it will be just as if not hotter. your only hope is an exhaust or cold air intake

    window box AC units will be going on clearance soon, IMO you'd be further ahead to get a 5200btu AC unit and run that. The newer ones have a thermostat you can set that will keep it a constant temp.

    Remember that A/C is not cooling, it's heat removal. That's how you want to approach your problem. How do I get the heat out. Not how do I get more cool air in.
