You're right that air will choose the path of least resistance, so your fan will likely be pulling a reasonable amount of air *in* from the other hole. Having two out-blowing fans might be better. Oh, and make sure the input vent at the bottom is big enough too.

Plan Z - move the computer to the kitchen and a kitchen appliance to the closet?
