I did a similar thing by placing my rad ouside in winter, mind you im in canada it was -15 ave without windchill!!!
And it brought my temps way down!!!
Be aware that when you switch off your pc, the water in the rad will be still i most for sure will freeze up in there, so pc off=mini fridge off!!
Dont forget!!! all the coolant frozen solid in there will totally block the flow! you dont want some tubing lines coming off do you!!!
As for the coolant mix, it depends what pump you using, with a high flow pump the water wi;; move much too fast through the rad to freeze, but just incase add some 5-10% anti freeze.
I say go for it!!!! It will work!!

EDIT: you can use alcohol but i wouldent, if you are test all your parts and research it more. Test your parts as in if there will be any chemical reactions and such. Just use a water based mixed. Much easier.
but the massive heat from the rad would probly overwork the Fridge's compressor. I suggest a copper pipe flow-thru type thing like i mentiod earlier. I've always wanted to try the copper pipe thing idea but i don't W/C


OBTW, i've put a bag of 70% isoproply alcohol in the freezer for 3 or 4 days and no ice, it jsut got a little thicker(viscosity)...

Why not just get a little box the size of your rad, throw some dry ice in there, and place your rad inside???

that might work, but 1. it might flash freeze parts of the fluid in the rad and 2. it's a very temporary thing. If this works well he'll probly keep it...

Yup might floash freeze, what you can do though is place the dry ice in the bottom of tubbleware or something, set the fans on pull, and place your rad in ann airtight shroud over the dryice, so that cold air from the dry ice is sucked through the rad

*warning* Cpt. Obvious is rearing his head.


It would freeze the res water unless it was all anti-freeze or alcohol tho. If it can freeze solid a 6-pack o' brew, then any water in w/ the anti-freeze would probably clump up as ice...

haha ya i know, but if he used a micro res, it wouldent have time, or a bigger res, you would need a higher % of anti-freeze of course....
and if it can freeze a 6-pack!! it shouldnt hyave a problem cooling that rad at all, the water is not that warm!

I used only 5% anti-freeze and i was running my MCR320 rad with the whole thing outside the window at temps of -15!! as long as the flow is running your fine!!

Thread Starter 
Some awesome brainstorming going on guys. No dry ice I watercool because water is cheap and I got plenty of reverse osmosis water where I work(EDM machice) but the fridge has settings on it 1-7 (4) will freeze beer. 7 is cryogneitc LOL. Also what if I filled most of the empty space with containers of water and get the temp about 1c under freeze temp. that would help the compressor in its fight right but still have room for the fans to function for airflow.

This is all brainstorming as of now but if we can come up with a cool clear cut way I will do it.
