when i put one together, im just going to buy a cheep case, drill a hole right on threw the side pannel, and one threw the top of the case. use a heat sink like this thermaltake silent tower, Link , using 2 or more fans(one blows on hs, other sucks it away) ,and pvc pipe from the side pannel hole to the heatsink intake, from the heatsink exaust to the hole on the top.

that way the hs isnt using case air at all, it would use ambiant air, and the hot air will shoot right out the top, since heat likes to rise anyway.
