Alot of y'all have cut an opening in the sides of your cases & added fans & ducting to blow cool outside air down onto your CPU. In my situation, I can't add a side opening & am thinking about making an opening in the front of my case & fabricating a duct that will connect to the H.S.
Has anyone done something like this? What material did you use to make your ducts? Do you have any pics?
Thanks in advance.

I've run a dryer duct from a front fan on my Antec SX830 to the CPU. I ran it from the fan in the hard drive cage and the cage held the duct in place. It was getting good airflow, but my temps didn't improve so I took it out. Dryer ducts are kinda too big (wide), though.
