I've been thinkning of doing the same thing but I assume It'll be snow out so you'll need to make sure none of that gets in. Otherwise I think it would work good, no reason it shouldn't.

edit: also could just have a vent to a window and close that off.

Just realize that if your parts get too cold, water will condense on them and your computer will die. Make sure the air isn't too humid.
