E6600 mini fridge?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Has anyone ever tried building a pc inside a mini-fridge??
My biggest concern is if it will put condensation all over my components?
I can drill through the top and put a bunch of adapters in and seal them with some kind of ****ing. But the condensation, will it happen?

Theres a thread like this almost every work lol.

And heres the same answer: It won't work

A fridge is meant to keep things cold, not remove heat. You'll burn out the fridge in a couple hours.

I see now that im told this i wonder why I didn't realize it. Is there any other cheaper solution other than liquid cooling or phaze?

god I hate fridge folk. However if you take the fridge part you can actually use the compressor inside to cool a water loop to sub zero temps!

or perhaps you could use the cooling system from an old fridge?

yes, you can throw it in a pool, but it significantly decreases the life of your hardware...

Ya but unless your pool is full of sand (or empty), that would count as liquid cooling. lol

If you have a WC loop, you could probably put the radiator inside to help lower temps. Not that I've tried it, just speculating.
