Default Cooling my rack

I have received my new Pro Audio Bono rack last week. As I have 3 large amps in this rack with a lot of valves I wondered about installing some cooling. I have seen these possible solutions recently:

System 3E
http://www.amazon.co.uk/ANTEC-COOLER...pr_product_top

There are certainly a lot of other possibilities as well, but I guess these parameters would be important:

- Effective cooling
- Silent operation and low noise
- No introduction of RFI
- Endurance and stability in construction and operation

Does anyone has some recommended solutions for this? The rack is not enclosed, but I would like some cooling from above the amp.

jostber.......You may want to look at CoolerGuys.com. I am using their 120 mm fans with speed controllers and a digital temperature read out. The larger fans let me move a nice amount of air even though I have them slowed down so that they are silent. Here is what I did: http://www.audioaficionado.org/gener...installed.html
