okay here's the short of it...we have a comp. lab at my school where i teach refugees about tech stuff. all of our computers can barely support W98 so i've convinced the powers that be to upgrade. i plan on building the comps myself so as to save some cayshe therefore allowing me more money to spend on quality parts. here's where the get down goes down (i think i meant to say here's the rub):

my boss is a complete idiot and has yet to get the building air conditioned (long, long story). being that it's the middle of summer and we have nothing but fans to cool the room the temp in there probably reaches anywhere from 95% t0 105% (YES IT SUCKS)

anyway the comps we have in there already (pentium 2s mostly) seem to handle it just fine. we even have a few pentium 4s in there that seem to have no problem with the heat...we desperately need the new comps and can get those as opposed to the AC which ain't happnin' anytime soon (long stupid story). anyway, just how detrimental will these conditions be on the new machines???? as i'm sure you have too, i've always heard that heat is about the worst thing for a comp but like i say the other comps seem to be alright with it.

You might try writing a –HEAT REPORT – with a more Technical Approach & refrain from the negative phrases of those, who can help you.

You could make it a Class Project and get your class involved. You say you are “teaching” – Technical Stuff – Well here is an opportunity to apply: Technical Stuff.

You have a great opportunity for: Teaching “ROOT CAUSE” Troubleshooting. Do a Heat Study. You have the questions. . . Research & Develop the Answers.

Investigate – Research – Measure – Collect Data – Analyze – Discuss – Develop an Outline – Write Report – Review – Correct – Submit -

Make the DATA talk for you

Sounds as if this could be an “Interesting Class”. What enrollment size, do you have? How many weeks is the class? Is this a course at an Accredited Technical School?

Here are some Webb site links:

Keep it positive-

I would go with something amd that you know is gonna run quite cool. It depends how hot you mean, if the room temp regularly exceeds 25 degrees then you need otherwise you are fine just dont get pentium 4 cause then it will get very hot.

What type of building is this?

It can't support AC? Is it made of paper?
