No need to run the oil through a fridge to remove heat, just through a radiator. Besides, you'd run into the same problem with running the oil through a fridge as you would cooling the PC in the fridge--the compressor would still be experiencing a lot of load. Since you are removing the same amount of heat from the PC by the fridge (doesn't matter how you're doing it, whether it's directly having the PC in the fridge, or cooling the oil you're submerging the PC in), you're putting the same amount of load on the fridge compressor, which is where the problem lies.
