Hi Topias,
Tervetuloa!
Thank you for this excellent page and the useful links.
Glad to know such good contributors like you are around...

P.S.
The air is meant to be sucked from bottom, through the computer, to the top.

I mean, with such an external, noisy installation, you can allow yourself pure efficiency (and a more powerful fan), since you don't care anymore about design and noise?
