Problem room gets too hot

Hey everyone,

We just had a new AC/Heating system installed and frankly its made the whole house wonderful except one room, my office.

My basement office has lots of heat generation going on. With the computer equipment I have in here there is over 265 watts of equipment hooked to my primary UPS(according to its readings). That isn't counting the two printers and one of the two monitors and several other devices that probably bring the total to 300-350 watts of devices in the room. All said the room runs about 5-10deg over ambient in the house when its a mild day since the air doesn't run much. On a day when the air runs more it can be as little as 2-3 deg higher.

What if anything would you recommended to help lower the temp in this room. I had considered a mini split but that seems likely to be overkill. I have set our thermostat to Circulate so that it occasionally kicks the fan on just to circulate the air. Any other thoughts?
