I cut the plywood 14" tall so it only blocks the lowest portion of the window, i had to really think this through cos my girl woulda killed me if she came home to a plywood window
Thanks though man, im stoked with the results, now as soon as i get my hands on a core 2 and another GTX then we'll really see what i can do

Don't you worry about condensation building up inside the tower? I would think as cold as the air is coming in and hitting those warm components, that during snow/rain you could get some moisture build-up. Am I wrong on that? Good idea though.

What's the specs of your rig?

EDIT: Are there fans in the plywood or only on the side panel? Are both tubes intake or outflow or one of each?
