If you had a fan at the other end, you could have cool air going in, and hot air to push out thereby keeping them even cooler!! 

But then there might be the issue of fan noise  Oo

Everything runs cool with the one fan plugged into a spare USB port on the hub. And I can't hear a thing.
Previously the Pi CPU was pretty warm, and the HDHomerun tuner too - although that was helped a bit by a firmware upgrade.

I'm really envious of these small 'racks' I see on here, as I know that if I built from scratch, I would have everything running by Pi only!!! 

Love the way it keeps everything in one place, unlike mine, where I have the HDHomerun no-where near the ariel connection, and hidden under the Hi-Fi! 

Now I really really want a 3d printer!!!

Right. Actually, racks are already available as more-or-less prefab.
On thingiverse I found a complete configurable 6"-rack-designer package. People have been using it to do stuff like this:

Here's the path to the design-tool itself:
https://github.com/KronBjorn/SixInchRack

This allows you to build complete racks with bespoke units held in place by 20*20 rails. See https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1936196

So, there you have it; a miniature rack.
