Servers that support higher inlet temperatures could significantly reduce or even eliminate the cooling costs of the data center. We received the 2U supermicro 6027R-73DARF that supports the latest Xeon E5-2600 V2 (Ivy Bridge EP) processors. Supermicro claims this server can cope with up to 47°C even when using 130W Xeons. We'll check their claims and see how the server copes with high inlet temperatures.
