Man, if you can make a rig out of a small fridge, think about what you could do with a regular-sized fridge You could make such a big server that you could run AMD or something

If I ran AMD I would unlock the multi's on all CPU's
...ppl run AMDs on air cooling why would you need this to run AMD

A fridge really, i was thinking doing that.

Before I will, i would like to discuss with you. Why not to use an air conditioned to cool the entire case?

look for the conversion at : http://www.simetric.co.uk/sibtu.htm

If it is hot outdoor = put the cold exhaust of the air conditioned to an home made intake on the pc case and the exhaust of the pc case could cool the house.

So?

The big advantage in this rig would be that the system will remain completely dust-free.
OC Newbie is correct. Condensation is not an issue here, unless the fridge is not sealed properly. If the door seals are damaged etc. or if for example the route taken by the power and other cables is allowing external room-air into the fridge then yes there will be a massive problem with condensation. Expanding foam and or silicone may help here.
Also, do not open the door (unless absolutely necessary) once the system is going as this also will allow air in which will hit due-point once it is cooled... unless you're using a frost-free system. Air in a properly sealed fridge or freezer is very dry.
Regarding the compressor being overloaded... it might be an idea to use a) a larger fridge or b) a freezer instead of a fridge but with its thermostat set to say just above freezing.

Unless you are using an industrial fridge, neither can handle a 400w+ constant load.
Once again...
