Server cabinet closet

We are trying to install a cooling system for our Server cabinet. The cabinet houses our Tower Server.

The cabinet is 77 High X 24 Wide X 36 Deep. The cabinet is installed in a dusty, no HVAC warehouse where the temperatures range from 45 to 100 degrees. We blocked all the vents in the cabinet to keep out the dust and are concerned as the internal temperatures can exceed 100 degrees.

We prefer a cooling unit that could be housed internal to the cabinet.
Price is a consideration.

Currently we have a makeshift portable air conditioner placed inside the cabinet but its thermostat is inaccurate and itself overheats quite often. It's kind of an oddball setup but hopefully someone has a suggestion

The outside measurements of your rack don't mean much but assuming it's a standard 4 post 19" rack http://www.kooltronic.com/ac-rack-series.php will probably do the job. If not you're going to have to use water cooling which involves a lot of plumbing and a heat exchanger on the outside wall of the building.

What is the power availability to the rack? Do you have 120, 208, 240, 347, 600 volt? Do you have only single phase or is three phase power available?

Thank you for your suggestions, the user has decided he does not want to invest largely into a cooling system and has instead decided to physically move the server into an air conditioned part of the office.

Good suggestion, price was higher than desired so it was decided to move the entire cabinet's location
