I am mounting in a sealed cabinet, a scanner that draws about 600W. I have been assuming that all of this is given off as heat. When the thing runs, it makes a great deal of audible noise. The device feels only slightly warm to the touch. We are guessing that much of the power is being converted to noise. Can I subtract this from the heat load, or does all this stuff become heat?
