mini refrigerator

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Has anyone try putting a rad in one? I seen people talk about putting rad in water but not a mini refrigerator. I just wonder if the water lines would have condensation problem.

Just search can a fridge cool a PC.. You will have your answer..
On the other hand. You can mount your rad on the exhaust of lets say an window unit air conditioner. Which would get you awesome temps.

A mini fridge doesn't have the capacity to handle something that makes heat. At least, most don't.

You get what you pay for...

If you drop the money on a mini fridge with a compressor and try to have it cool something that constantly generates heat, the compressor will burn out.

There have been many threads about this, the problem is that a fridge isnt designed to cool something with a heat output, ie a raditor, its meant for food. The fridge would heat up and probably be more of an insulator in the long run. Not to mention the compressor motor is not meant to run all of the time on a fridge.
