run cool: Anoka-Ramsey Community College's 100-unit computer
lab brings together cutting-edge technology to provide an energy-conscious,
in a environment ideally suited for study.
Take a moment and listen to the sound of your
computer. Now imagine that noise multiplied 100 times, in a relatively
confined enclosure. This is one of the challenges REASON faced while
designing and outfitting Anoka-Ramsey Community College's 100-unit
computer lab. In addition to providing a quiet and practical workspace
students can study without distraction, the lab needed to satisfy
the school's cutting-edge,
high performance computing needs both now and well into the future.
Furthermore, such a large quantity of systems running simultaneously tend to
generate substantial heat; enough to raise energy costs over the
summer when the facility must remain cool.
Fortunately, the team of experts at REASON had done their homework.
Their solution included designing a nearly noiseless, yet exceedingly
powerful PC based
on AMD's top-of-the-line
core technology. The overall
heat and noise levels are greatly reduced through the implementation
of low power components. The cooling technology is a combination
of low rpm fans and ultra-quiet fans. The systems also produce
less heat. which actually reduces the cost of air conditioning during
the summer months.
