    Or it can also probably bring colder air from outside the case and put it directly where it is needed...
    1) What is it
    Your guess seemed right.
    2) What does it do
    Your guess seemed right.........
    3) Where can i buy one!
    How are we supposed to know? Maybe it was homemade or something? And why would you wanna buy something that you have no idea the use of it...?

    I don't know what it does but it does show a nice neat build without a bunch of wires and cables to block the air flow.

    That is to bring in cooler outside air to the front of the CPU cooler. Looks homemade but there are some factory ones out there.

    Or ... Maybe he built it that way to keep cat hair from gumming up the circuitry.

    (There's definitely a cat in that house )

    it's called a fan-duct

    several companies make them and each looks different, but does the same thing...

    they vary from this:
