tip:
the short tubes are simply perfect for such a "wind-tunnel" you don't have to cut them...

also very nice:
a brush of the pringles-man (that where he opens his mouth to a big 'O', thats where the hole is placed)  :P

i thought of something like that: Posted Image
a fan that blows cool air "through" your plexi directly towards your cpu

so have a blow hole that pulls air from top with plexi, then have one the puts air in? I am not following you right, or so i think. i saw this fan duct how-to , but i am using both my 3.5 caddys, i have dual hard drives, and dual floppy drives. so i figured from the side or back, the top is gona have dual 80mm blow holes, or i planed, figured heat rises, so that is a good spot for air to exit, not enter.

if you cut a blowhole into your plexi that could look pretty cool (some guys did, fine worx!!!)
another plus is, that you can have one airflow from outside the case towards the cpu if you place the plexi-fan exactly in front of the cpu-fan (these normaly blow towards the cpu)
