Question CPU hole

Ok, i had thid idea while i was thinking of getting a new case for my old P4 (im on my new one now).

My case now is thermally challenged, as in its pretty hot inside. If i cut a hole in the side of the case(its old so i dont mind) that's the same diameter as the fan and used a bit of plastic tubing(bendy and clear) to run between the two, do you think it would lower inside temps?

i have one of those

I have it connected to my cpu and it goes straight through the side of the case

It has significantly lowered my case temp.

Yeah, like the tube things except that one end is on the cpu fan and the other goes to a hole on the side of the case.

Yeah im sure thats what thoes tubs he showd ya do to, I dont think it would be a prob. My comp case has a tub like that to goes to the CPU but it doest bend and attach directly to the fan. But im sure its ok. they have them for GPU's the tub goes from the front of the case to the back and covers the GPU.
