I've been watching the heat control issue carefully since I had to take a job offshore (cough reverse H1B cough) in a place without adequate AC and I was able to get them to ship my servers and some other gear. Then I read Intel is guaranteeing their servers will work up to 100 degrees F ambient temps in the pricing wars to sell servers, he who goes green and saves data
Most servers seem to be specified to run up to 95 degrees, with some particularly-dense ones specified to only handle 90. Network switching gear is usually specified to handle 105.
My own equipment typically experiences up to 83 degrees during the peak of summer (but quite a lot more if the AC fails).
