That stands a good chance of making it run hotter, due to the tube
restricting the airflow. You'd need an unfeasibly wide tube, I think.

I'd rather the side panel fan blew in, to supply the coolest possible
air to the vicinity of the CPU heatsink.

Course, what we really need are chips rated to run at over 100 deg C
and total-loss evaporative water cooling systems, with which to build
computers that make the tea.
