I think I would advise against this, or any other method, that forces warm air through the radiator. It is with a pretty good understanding of thermodynamics that I can say that every degree cooler the air passing through the radiator is, is a degree cooler the CPU should be. This is why companies like BeCooling recomend having fresh air pass through the radiator, with the radiator residing in the lower front portian of the case(remember that the lower the intake is in the room, the cooler the air is too).
