not in refrigerators , instead put the condensor from a fridge or an AC unit in a cooler

Nope the board needs to stay in my NZXT Nemesis. If I did this I'd run the cooling lines out the back anyho.

I won't and can't pressurize any of this. Alls I am wondering was will a refridgerator cool my rad and fan.

And does anybody know if Alcohol is abrasive or not and why it would hurt my pump and clear plastic lines.

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.
that not only sounds like it might work, it sounds INGENIUS! lol.

If u froze the water bottles b4 even running warm water thru the rad then the Ice should help to cool and keep the amount of energy needed to keep everything cold at a low, steady rate...

might be wrong tho, nvr kno

Cool, someone else who works with EDM machines! What type do you use, wire, sinker, or small hole? Some pretty powerful machines eh?

Come to think of it, the water cooler for a wire EDM machine (for those who don't know basically its a device which removes the added heat from machining to keep the water temperature the same as air temp. This way there is no expansion or contraction in the workpiece due to different air/water temperature (the workpiece is submerged under water while being machined, and measured in the air)) would be perfect. Just set the temperature on the unit to 10C and you're golden!! Now we just have to find a used cooler for cheap.

Sorry that was a but off topic.

I like where this is going, I've been tempted to try a bar fridge myself. I like the idea of running coils of copper tubing through the fridge, also if you submerge them in icy watter that should help a bit.

Only the tubes of the watercooling system (or rather, alcohol cooling) are led through it.. Yes, if the liquid inside the tubes is chilled too much, there might indeed be condensation on the outside of the tubes. You might want to watch out for that,.
If the whole computer was to be cooled, the likelihood of condensation in a sealed system is much lower.

Either way I don't think the fridge would work, even if it's only running through the fridge. The fridge would never turn off and would therefor burn up eventually.

Impossible, fridges are meant to keep objects that do not release heat cooled down, not cool down heated things. It will break.
