The Air Penetrator idea (a focused column of air) is reasonable, however it doesn't seem to take into account people using it as an exhaust fan. If you're using it as an exhaust fan the air column shape isn't going to matter. Also note that at time of writing you cannot easily source an 18cm fan filter. So if you are using this as a panel intake to focus on your CPU/motherboard either it'll be laying down unfiltered air or you'll be DIYing your own filter from tights (Google it).
