from the planning manual - online
http://www.as400.ibm.com/tstudio/planning/environ/temp.htm
olderr manuals had the following
Most server units and devices operate best between 18 C (65 F) and 29 C
(85 F). We recommend an optimal temperature of 24 C (76 F). Check system
requirements for thermal output and temperature ranges to help figure out
your temperature environment
newer stuff (but couldn't find new system requirements-kept taking me to old
pages
REQUIREMENTS    for disk expansion towers for 820 & 830
Operating 10 to 38 C (50 to 100.4 F)
Non-Operating 1 to 60 C (33.8 to 140 F)

quite a diff from 85 to 100?
