Calculate the BTUs per Hour That Your Intel® Server System Generates


Product Information & Documentation



How can I calculate the British thermal units (BTU) per hour my server generates?

  1. Get the chassis power supply wattage. For example, the Intel® Server System R1208WT2GSR has one 750W power supply.
  2. Divide the power supply wattage by the power supply efficiency, found in the chassis Technical Product Specification (TPS). Our example server shows 91% efficiency when running at 100% load; 750/0.91 = 824 Watts consumed
  3. Multiply the Watts consumed by 3.41214 to get BTU/h. Our example is: 824*3.41214~=2,812 BTU/h
