I need a cooling solution for my work's server.
Currently both out SBS Server and CCTV DVR Server are located under a confrence table.
The CCTV server is fine as it's a low power Celeron 2600 with a Big Hard drive and a Skyview 4 Channel (soon to be 8 channel) DVR CCTV card.
However the SBS Server (see specs at bottom of post), as a problem. The SBS Server runs rather hot. Airflow inside the case is not the problem, I have installed extra fans both on front and back to in allowed for air flow.
It went is stored and locked up under this table

is where I have the problem.
This cabnet (155cm Wide x 60cm Tall x 53cm Deep) as has no air flow. We would like to keep the confrence table clear for when we do have to talk with some one. However when I storing the SBS Server under the able the hot air that is getting blown out of the case is just getting recycled back into the case again.
When I open the cabnet, I immediately notice that the air is about 10c warmer that what it is in the office. And the tower is extremely warm to touch.
And just about every 24 hours, we need to reset the server.
Mind you, if we keep the server out side of the cabnet, we don't have this problem.
We would like to keep the Server under the table as we use this able when we are talking with clients, reps and other big wigs. However with the fact that our server is falling over every 24 hours, it's preventing us from doing so.
I have put in the request for a proper server rackmount cablet, however at this stage we have not plans in doing that until next year.
So what I need now is any ideas on how I can move circulate approx 50 litres of hot air out of this cabnet.
