Possible LC Radiator cooling?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone. I recently bought a Coolmaster Aquagate S1 liquid cooling kit, and im getting decent temperatures. What im wondering is if I could somehow put the radiator/fan into a refrigerator , thus reducing my temps substantially? Also, would my computer parts be 100 percent safe? If anyone has some , please post it^_^

This has been so over posted. Youd burn a fridge rather quickly trying too cool a constant heat dump. A fridge is desighned to cool something, then maintain it at that temperature. Not tocontinually run to try and cool of a constant heat dump. IT WONT WORK!!!!

Doesn't work, if were willing to rip a freezer up however.
Wouldn't recommend this kit for that though and it would require a whole lot more work.
Just to continue with what vwgti said and explain it further, the amount of energy used to cool something such as an apple from room temperature (let's say 28c for argument's sake) to fridge temperature (let's say 5c), which does not continuously supply a continuous amount of heat but gradually cools down rather than a water cooling system which will not only be likely to be alot hotter than room temperature at it's hottest point, but also continously generating heat.

Fridges and freezers are designed to cool a fairly large area and keep it at a certain temperature with no heat being given off by the object in the mean time within reason, where as phase change cooling which you may have heard of, is designed to cool a tiny area in comparison, a postage stamp area compared to the area the size of your fridge/freezer which is easily thousands time larger.
