i guess it really depends on the picture frame width. they are not really tested for strength, but i would suppose atleast a 4mm thickness would support it.

now i'm more for the painting of the inside white now. that would give it the iCurve look and you could even use black decals to put your name in it, such as "iWhitlock" if it was going to be mine. for the cable that leads for the fan, get some shrink tube wrap around it, white preff, so the cable is not so obvious. you could also paint the wires. have it follow on one side of the base and attatch it with an epoxy. from there, you drop it into a converter with some resistors on it so the 5 volt fan connection won't blow. if you have an old a/c adapter, this would work very well.
