my computer is in my "den" wich is a small room connecting balcony to my living room, and i have 2 side fans sucking in air and blowing it towards my video card and cpu heatsink, i was thinking about getting 2 or 1 huge rubbe flexible tube and lol lashing it to the side of te computer and then have a small opening at the door and place the tube in that opening.so badically the rest of the door is closed while the computer is sucking in air which is -20 degrees celcius. good idea ?

ya.. -20c will defenitly freeze your comp, and im talking physically. 1 reponse.. DONT DO IT!
it'd be better to put it right next to an AC vent.. which is also a bad idea. i did that at school 2 years ago, dang.. i got the hot running athlon xp 2000 down to 80f.. usually running at 115-125f.. then i noticed moisture and stopped

Maybe you can get a refrigerated case, if you have an extra few hundred dollars laying around...

Best method is air condition the room and remove any heat ducts.
