Cooling power consumption vs computer power
The following tables give indicative percentage ﬁgures of cooling power consumption against computer power at full and partial cooling loads. These are more in line with ESEER calculations and a useful and accurate base for your data centers' cooling system efﬁciency when planning a new build.
|External ambient air||Part|
|Max air temp||6.0%||6.0%|
|Min air temp||1.5%||1.5%|
|Average air temp||2.2%||4.0%|
Examples above are based on dry air coolers.
|Constant water temperature||1.5%||1.5%|
Examples: boreholes, rivers, lakes, sea water
