Thanks for the advice.
But can you really see ducting working on PCs without removing or greatly reducing modularity and upgradability.
BTW this PC is not noisy, it has lots of fans at low speed for good balance of air-flow to noise.
I play with the lights down on such a system...
so I never notice the lights dim. It does a good job of supplementing the central heating in the winter.
We make gaming behemoths too but the bulk of the market buys at the mainstream

Lots of fans at low speed = better cooling vs noise than a duct and a high speed fan. In our many years experience as a system builder ducts tend to become resonating chambers amplifying the sound of the high speed fan to a deafening roar.
I like the shoe box PC idea, watch this space or follow my tweets...
