Mysterious ventilation in that room.  Near as I can tell the floor,
ceiling, and back (left) wall are solid. The only other wall looks a bit
like a shoji screen, but maybe that is filter material and air moves in
or out through that wall?  (Arguing against that is the book case which
would then be impeding the flow, and of course also that the racks would
then be parallel to the flow.)  The one visible air duct is a narrow
slit above the right most rack, which appears to be about 10cm. high by
1m wide.

Maybe the heat is carried away by the rats nest of cables?
