Airflow Precautions


Caution  -  Proper airflow is essential for keeping the server's internal temperatures within a safe operating range.

Air flows from the front to the rear of the server.

Follow these guidelines to ensure unrestricted airflow in the server:

  • Adhere to the minimum airflow clearance specifications. See Physical Specifications.

  • Install the server so the front faces the cool aisle and the rear faces the warm aisle.

  • Do not direct warm air into the server.

  • Prevent recirculation of air within a rack or cabinet.

  • When servicing server internal components, ensure that air ducts and baffles are properly installed.

  • Route cables so they do not interfere with airflow.
