im in the process right no of building a smooth inside diameter flexible duct to run from my 12,500btu air conditioner. i am mounting 2 fans along the inside of the 8 foot duct to help flow where the 90 degree turn will be to enter the case.
i do know that when i turn the air conditioner on which is 8 feet away from my case that the temps drop at least 8c. if the duct causes temps to drop even more, i am going to buy a miniature room air conditioner that is portable and i believe they are smaller than my case! it will probably sit right up against my case with about a 5 to 10 inch duct. it will probably have speed settings im sure so i can minimize the electric bill lol.
any comments critsizm ideas welcome!!!

You know you are going to have to tell us how well it works, how much it cost and where we can get one.

sounds like a pretty good idea to cool it. More practicle than refrigerater cooling IMHO.
