It doesn't really matter because WarStallion's friend's components will not be running below the dewpoint inside the fridge. I understand what you mean but essentially it is like worrying about condensation forming with air cooling.

Haha. Yes in that case there might be trouble! Perhaps using a dehumidifier in the room while the experiement is running is a good idea.

TheInformationator most people know what the outcome of this type of experiement will be but perhaps we need to let someone try it to finally quash this idea once and for all.

There is no pump in a fridge, it would be the compressor that burns out. Yes that can be replaced however the costs would be very high and it would be probably cheaperr to buy a whole new fridge instead.

Why not try this, get a bar fridge, and then stick a mini fridge inside of the bar fridge.... then in the mini fridge inside the bar fridge baggie the entire fridge, and that would work wonderfully.

Sorry to burst you all's bubble but its not going to work fridges are only 10% duty cooling, witha computer in it, it will not be able to keep it cool. It will overwork the fridge's cooling capacity with in 30 minutes or less, then your computer will over heat. fridge units for cpu's are 100% duty cycle. This has been discussed several times, with same results.

what if we used one of those compressors that you see in food stores that have no top or enclosed space where you can just grab the frozzen food? Arent they made to contantly cool since heat is coming into the space where the food is?

Not really, as its usually closed, just people opening it and closing, thats why the door shuts after you let go. It cant handle it, but yes it is stronger then your average refridgerator, just barely.
