However, the freshwater with ICE in it may not give as cold a temp reading as the saltwater with ice melting, but that is because the temperature of the saltwater would be lower, only because the salt enables it to be that cold without freezing. For an accurate test, the temp probe would need to be driven into solid ice of the same temp as the ice in the saltwater.
Well, I slept through chem everday so take this however you want, but on Mythbusters they proved that if you want your beer cold, a solution of salt, water and ice is the best method. I don't know if that applies to CPU cooling in anyway so if its irrelavent BS just ignore me

SAME CONCEPT. Salt water can be lower than 0*f without freezing, and has a higher thermal transfer rate than solid ice, so the beer gets cold faster.

Why not just put the whole computer in a mini-fridge?

Fixed!

Some people have attempted to use refrigerators for various methods of PC cooling. In general, the fridge over-wears and the compressor motor burns out (or something like that.)
