    Ok, I have gotten my hands on a low height fridge...

    My question to the really nerdy is: Is it possible to let my pc suck air through that fridge without running into trouble with moisture on the pc innards and possible shortcircuit, my thought was to simply make an intake hole in one side near top and then an outlet at opposite bottom/side..if that makes sense....

    have been looking at watercooling..but since i got this fridge for free and got the room, i was thinking of using it like that :) cold beer AND cold pc in one go maybe.....unless the cold/hot air will cause trouble ofc.

    I thought I remember someone saying that a fridge doesn't have the cooling capacity to keep up with a computer's heat output. I'd guess the compressor would probably burn out.

    Yeah that's been talked to death on every forum I've ever been on and the conclusion has always been it doesn't work very well.

    I was referring to the condensation on the motherboard. Due to the fact that the cpu will be sub-zero. Frost buildup is a given.
