Cold Air Intake for Q6600

I have an Intel Q6600 OC'd to 3.0ghz. But temps idle around 50 c and 60 c while under load. Motherboard does 30 idle and usually gets up to 40. I live in Wisconsin and since it gets really cold around here during the fall I would like to know if there is a way I could use that air to cool my cpu/chipset. What I mean by that is to open the windows and have some sort of "wind/air collector" attached to an air duct and covering the side of my rig. I have a X'clio 787 case.

Here is what I would like to do. I did in paint...sorry.

here is also another picture

Right now I'm using a desk fan to cool the chipset since the 6 x 120mm fans that came with the case are dead. Other than that I'm thinking about just cooling down the cpu with this cooler.

Please let me know what you think if the window air cooling is possible and if it will also work with an air conditioner. Please give me an honest answer thanks.

Hmm I'll consider it, but still looking for an answer to the window/air conditioner cooling.
