Just the power supplies, i've never noticed any individual modules running
hot.  I use mostly power-one or condor PSs, which have substantial aluminum
frames that do a good job as heat sinks, as long as there's free
convective  air movement around them they seem fine without fans.  imy main
DIY has 3 cabinets with 4 or 5 frac racks @ - i haven't measured individual
module current draw, but each cabinet has it's own 3amp supply, seems fine.
