By BuildMyServer Aug 18, 2021
For customers who plan to have their server in a small space, one consideration is, "How hot will this server get?" We measured the BTU (British Thermal Unit) of some of our most popular servers and provided a comparison to some everyday appliances.
The models we tested were across-the-board were all 8-bay rack server models from HP and Dell – 2.60Ghz 8 Core Processors, 96GB of RAM, and 8TB of SAS HDD storage – since they reflect mid-level specs. While a device will never always be Idle or Peak, you can use these guides to make the most informed decision depending on your anticipated usage.
