Computer in a fridge...  

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I just posted a thread about setting up and air an conditioner beside my pc, but now i have an idea with a fridge. if i took a small beer fridge that could fit my motherboard and all of its components and built it would it condensate? i would bolt the door closed if i had to. I would install thermometers to watch the temps.

no no and no the compresser will burn out........ use an ac unit and thats fine its designed to be on forever

This PC-in-fridge question is posed much more often than it should; condensation would become less of an issue (if it was one) as the compressor would burn out long before anything actually happened to your equipment. To prevent a giant troll/flamefest I will close this if you have no other questions as most PC-in-fridge threads become that over time.

As long as you don't have any water cooling involved in there, it can't be that bad tbh I'm personally against this idea however...

thats not really the best of ideas because it will condensate lol and it would probably be cheaper to just get a watercooling kit

This has been asked many times before. The compressor is not designed to run 24/7 and remove heat constantly, it is designed to run in cycles and keep cold things cold, it would burn out in a matter of days if not hours

I wouldn't recommend putting your PC in a fridge, it would definitely condensate, you'd have to regulate the temperatures, and I doubt you could do it accurately.

Maybe with thorough testing you could figure out a way, but theoretically it's implausible.
