|Industrial computers are made to work in quite harsh environments. Ours tend to work inside boxes that can get quite hot. They work everyday next to large motors so it should be OK. Even in the server racks the boxes are tight together and run pretty hot. Generally the difference between 78 and 98 isn't that big of a deal to a computer if filters have been changed and you understand that it could fail a bit sooner (on paper.) I think I'd worry if it gets in the sun or above 115 air temps. |
The owners manual usually claims some number as warrantied range. One example is 10-35C whatever that is in real numbers.
If you don't care about noise or emi/rfi you could even remove the case.
Better to add in a few extra fans or select a good cpu cooler would be all one should need.
Set bios settings to shutdown or at least warn on temps.
Actually all the classes I have had in esd were to use the preferred esd safe vacuum or in some places you are allowed to use low pressure high volume air. The last three large employers didn't allow using any compressed air. They insisted that one use a vacuum. Compressed air is not esd approved, it creates a flying hazard to eyes. It creates a dust hazard that may include lead along with nuisance dust.
One can tape a long paper tube to a vacuum in most cases to be a better substitute for a professional vacuum. If you insist on using a compressed product keep the nozzle well away and do this outside with mask and safety goggles. You don't want the dust back in your home and you don't want any small parts in your eyes.
1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
