Another refridge experiment - Page 2

post #11 of 15
What if you had a tube from the pc exaust back to the freezer because chances are that the air isnt completly warmed, so it would loosen the load on the freezer.

Why not just stick the whole case in a fridge or freezer and cut a few holes in the door lining just big enough to let wires run through? You can find a cheap minifridge for like $50, and the Thermaltake Big Typhoon cost $45, so why not just cool your whole system for $5 more? Or am I missing something...

YES!! I was going there next!! forget the freezer and all that connections. Just stick the mother board in a mini fridge!! Run all wires for everything else out of one hole and seal it up with expanding foam, bam! done!

Refridgerators are meant to make the lowest possible thermal-equilibrium, not cool something. The heat a computer makes is too much for a average minifridge or fridge to handle. You would need a full on industrial one that can freeze things in large amounts.. But for that price you could get phase change.

well you could use this cold air from the frigde to cool an existing water coolin set up and get the temps sub zero, i did this same sort of thing using the outside air as the fridge to cool my liquid to below freezing
