Wow really?

My mind set was on the radiator. I understand That the condenser will burn up from running 24/7. My question is?
Will a Radiator get warm enough to cause this?
My system runs 45c on load and my radiator feels cool to the touch.

I have a mini fridge in storage. I think I might just test this.

If you are going to do this I suggest not doing it with your current rig but buying a very cheep build and testing it, because it will end badly.

Oh, and no you CANNOT cool your rads through a fridge. Rads generate heat. Fridges CANNOT COOL HEAT SOURCES. I hope your buddy enjoys hot Rockstar, because that's exactly what he's going to end up having very soon.

Refridgerators CANNOT cool anything that produces heat, PERIOD. Same with freezers. Their concept is to keep cool things cool already. If you take a soda out of the fridge, how long does it take to get warm? Is the soda continuously putting out heat? No. Same thing with food. You can put warm food into the fridge, sure. But once the food cools off to the temperature of the fridge, it stays cool....because its not PRODUCING heat.

Freezers won't work either.

Have fun putting heat generating things into an insulated box with no airflow. Let me know how that goes for you .

no.. it wont.. my buddy is running dual RADs in his fridge 24/7 he gets normal temps he only had 1 fan and its on his computer there is NO fan on his RADs (cuz there in the fridge) he modded his big fridge and he sealed it with rubber glue, the Tubes run straight out the side and then go through the back of his desk to his computer. like I said ill call him tomorrow for pics.
