I'd be looking into itx format instead provided it would do what I needed it to do.

If you were to build a pc with a vertical tube ( think chimney here ) I'm sure you could create more than enough airflow just by generating heat..
Anyone here ever smoke beside a table lamp? The smoke will get drawn a long way into the bottom of the shade by the airflow created by the 60w bulb.
Think about 2-300w of heat with a small diameter chimney above it.
