Well... tho it has been some time since I ran mine on a regular basis,
there was a time when a '750 was my main UNIX box and it did the 24/7 shift
in a small room I built for it in my garage. The only real concession to
environment control was a vent fan which kicked in once the temperature in
the room hit 80f. In the summer, I tended to shut it down on hot days.
