Open rack vs. enclosed cabinet

    I'm looking to move my servers to a rack/cabinet in a 7-ft by 5.5-ft room.
    About 6 tower servers, 1 rack server, 4 rack switches, 3 routers/telecom,
    and 3 non-rack UPS.

    Would an enclosed cabinet work in terms of cooling? Any general
    recommendations of open rack vs. enclosed cabinet? Not much literature on
    the topic...

    total the watts you pull with all the hardware working hard (fully loaded)
    convert to tons of A/C and add that much A/C to the closet.

    "apply to enclosed items" is grayed out
