From the submitter:

The silver ducting is from a portable air con unit designed to stop the multi-million dollar machines overheat. The PSU fan on the PC pictured failed, and instead of replacing it, this baby kludge was born from momma kludge to duct cold air into the back of the case.

Hey bro can I borrow some cool air?

Redirects all of it.

Messy room? Check. Box of macaroni? Check. Laptop overheating due to large amounts of torrents? Check. Trying a terrible idea to cool down said laptop? Check.

I think it's safe to say he's in college.

From the submitter:

My new video card is rather LARGE, and there was only one slot on the motherboard which could accomodate it. It's VERY close to my sound card (which also cannot be moved), and I noticed a strange "ping..ping..PINGPINGPING" sound coming from the case. All the heat generated inside was making the entire video card warp slightly (this only occurs when playing Fallout 3 with LOTS of mods) and the fan was coming into contact with some of the solder points on the sound board! Yikes!

He had problems with overheating so he decided to fix it with little pieces of plastic? This should end well.

So That's What 'S' Video Stands For
