In this example a had the intake to the side as I had fans in the side cover, but something similar sucking in from the front, with an additional fan blowing at the intakes, should make a nice difference. I'd be interested to see the results if anyone has a go .
I can see several companies making similar setups, and making a decent profit because of the simplicity and it's ability to actually lower temps.
