I am running 2 mining rigs with 3 5830s, 2 5850s and 1 6870.  Needless to say, they are pumping out some serious heat, and I have been struggling trying to find the most efficient way to remove it so it minimizes my electric bill.  Went to home depot, picked up a few things, and after a few different configurations, I ended up with this gem.  It's ghetto, but effective.  The air comes out the back of the PCs where it is pushed in (and sucked in) the air flow of the fan.  The garbage bag funnels the airflow into 3 dryer vents, when go to the window where they are taped with protecto wrap tape to a 30" wide air vent.  The protecto wrap tape not only holds the dryer vent tubes to the air vent, but seal it to minimize outside air from coming in.

Why not simply put your rig outside ?
Most of us live in cities on skyscrapers, no one will take your rig from that balcony on the 10th floor ...

I live on the 4th floor of a building, while it is a good idea in theory, I can think of 2 major flaws... 

A) first good rain will completely shut down my mining operation

B) I live in Texas, and 100 deg weather is common.  Not a place to run things outside

Waste of electricity, no reason to cool air when I can just throw it outside
