Can you run the tube tight to the the corner and bring it in at an angle (not 90) under the psu. Have you got a top mounted psu? otherwise this is a silly suggestion.

Maybe covering the tubing that is exposed to the psu exhaust in silver paint or reflective material would help prevent the heat being transferred to the tubing.
Yep, top mounted PSU, and unfortunately the 1/2 ID hose would probably kink if I tried to put a tight radius bend into it.

The more I think about it, the more I'm thinking of running the tubing straight down into the case through the plexi.
