No offense to the others but I think my duct material is the best. I use the plastic cone that people put in home made speaker boxes. They come in several sizes, I put a 3" one on for my 60mm fan and it encompases it with just a little room around the outside. It matches up perfectly with an 80mm fan. And they have a rim around the outside that's about one centimeter long so if the hole you drill in your case door is off by less than 1cm (like mine was ) then you can just cut away at the side that you need to move the duct over to and when you put the duct in the un-evenness of the hole will be covered by the rim. And all you need to do to attach it is hot glue the underside of the rim, no screws or bolts and therefore no screw or bolt holes needed to be drilled. And the tube is smooth so theres no turbulence drawing the air in.

That one sounds very nice! I need to get some plastic ducting before I re-install my duct. My current metal duct is shorting my system out some how..

Close up on the door (too close for my crappy camcorder but you can see the rim covers any hack job you do on the case)
