What the hell is this nonsense about sticking the components in the freezer? That will do nothing for electrostatic discharge-damaged items.

The only time I've heard of (and used) a freezer repairing anything is for hard drives that have undergone hardware failure, and data is recovered from the drive before it warms back up.

If anything, the cold will separate electrical connections in things like memory modules and graphics cards--there's a reason why components have thermal tolerances, which rarely include sub-zero temperatures.
