We are going to move to a new building and need provide cooling to the server room.  Are there any recommendations for a decent web site I could visit that could help me find a cooling unit that would be sufficient to cool the server room.  We only have a single rack of servers since they are virtualized now and the room is only 10 x 10 so I don't think a lot of cooling is needed but was hoping to find a site that could calculate what is needed.

Intel website says:

With the power consumption, use the following formula to convert watts to BTU/Hr
Power consumed = Watts/efficiency
Watts x 3.412= BTU/h

Example using a 650W power supply at 90% efficiency:
650/0.90 = 722
722W x 3.412 = 2,464 BTU/h

I say this, because most air-co will have BTU ratings as well

So if you have 10 servers similar to the example I gave you, you'd better buy an airco rated at 25000 BTU (some companies prefer to install two of 12000 BTU side by side though, having a specialist look at it or install it won't hurt)
