Cooling requirements and other considerations installing (4) C7000 blade systems into a 42U cabinet

I was wondering if anyone could elaborate on the power, cooling, positioning and any other considerations when installing (4) C7000 Blade systems in a 42U cabinet.  Does it need to be physically located anywhere in particular in a row? Can I have an empty cabinet next to it? etc...

 

Does anyone have experience with this?

Have you seen their power sizer?  http://h71019.www7.hp.com/ActiveAnswers/cache/347628-0-0-0-121.html.  That should help answer some of your questions.  Also, keep in mind any weight restrictions for your floor.  And networking/SAN connectivity.  If you have the power and cooling rack/row configuration isn't an issue.
