The reason you can not cool your pc in a fridge is because they are only made to stay on until the temp reaches a certain ammount. If you ran one 24/7 it would burn out. The fridge is the opposite of an AC unit.
What about, A fridge outside in the winter months, with an AC unit inside blowing onto a PC?

You have to be really careful when using any kind of really cold air. IF the inside of your case isnt roughly around the same temp as your outside condesnation would zap it Im not the one to talk. I ran my pump into a bucket full of ice water and benched at 10c

I didn't know fridges made things warmer?!? J/K!

I always love these threads.

Seriously, if you're considering putting your PC in a fridge/freezer, just send DuckieHo a PM and he'll tell you what's up.

If you really want some extreme cooling, just get a wall A/C unit, and run some wide tubing from the A/C vent to your case fan intakes. There are actually a few members here who have successfully done this. (Can't remember their names ATM, sorry.) The cooling ability is epic.

We can also turn a stove into a peltiar.

Actually, it's usually not wise to run your Hard Drives below freezing (32°F or 0°C).

This Environmental Specification sheet for WD SE16 Hard Drives, for example, states the lowest operating temp to be 32°F. (They can be stored in cooler temps, however.) I'm pretty sure most other modern hard drives go by similar guidelines.
