Pretty much all the electricity used by the server gets converted into
heat. You can convert VA or watts into BTU/h by dividing by 0.3. That
is the maximum heat the server can produce.

In my experience the 1650/1750 series uses about 1/3 the maximum
rating, teh 2650 will use about that unless fully stuffed with disks.
