Well i have something set up as described my Chris, however i am pulling air in and have a foam air filter at the window to block moisture and air borne debris. The thing is, i don't know if my case fan is pulling enough air (or physically can) which brings me to asking what would be a high cfm fan with relatively low noise that'll fit in a 3" diameter ducting.

Industrial fans, but you're gonna pay money for them. Think Bathroom ceiling fans...And actually now that Ive got some coffee in me, that wont really solve your problem since they are 120 AC. I'm unsure if they make 12v fans like that. Probably, but you'll have to do some digging.

Updating original post with pictures of current progress. I would assume perhaps just a regular case fan with higher cfm would be able to do the job, i may be testing this afternoon as a friend here as 2 of them that are louder then my fans but at least one really sucks/blows air.

Well he doesn't have to run the fans off his PC; he could always power them straight from the wall.

bathroom ceiling fans retail for around 100 bux. You could purchase one that has ducting connections already attached with a bit of wire, plug, switch, and pump the air in or out. But ari is a broke student this isn't really an option.

And if i was looking to start to drop that much money it would seem watercooling would be potentially the better route and thats something i dont want to go right now

Well the cheapest way would be to move your tower onto the dresser next to window. Hot air will go out. Pumping air out thru ducting is to costly, need a high volume fan 200cfm. Move your desk around.
