That might work if the vendor is providing the entire room environment in 
addition to the computer hardware, but not if they're only supplying the 
computer hardware.  Temperature of the CPU depends directly on ambient 
temperature (which involves the HVAC units) and airflow patterns (which 
involves the room and rack designs).
