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.)

[Completely useless post]
Why not just put the whole computer in a mini-fridge?

well i hve got the dry ice so thats all good and stuff.
but i have tried it with regular ice with no luck. it would melt off way to fast to even work. so

|TheSubtleKnife||you could go regular ice but still use acetone like the DICE'ers use...|

This thread has gone on for long enough, ya? I'd say we've attacked the issue from enough angles. ;-P
The dice is outta the question for this kid. He is trying to use what he can. I just think that putting water in a CPU pot is a bad ****ing idea. Go with liquid cooling and the water chiller, and employ the use of ice and salt in the heat exchanger reservoir. (Salt should stay outside of the cooling lines, ya? Inside the cooling lines, there should be antifreeze coolant. I already said this earlier in the thread.)
Water condensation near your motherboard is still going to be a threat for you. Are you even reading this thread anymore? I'll PM you... ;-P

Whatever the case, salted ice turns to saltwater (which has a much faster heat transfer rate than solid ice) and at those "freezing temperatures", the cold saltwater would be ice without salt (obviously ).
EDIT: maybe I AM wrong? LINK
Oh wait "[adding salt] can bring the temperature down as low as -21Â°C" so no, I was right. I'm only ever wrong when I doubt myself. hahah jk
THIRD edit: To elaborate, in a previous post, I established that about -21Â°C was the freezing point of a saturated salt water solution. However, I have neither verified nor disproven that the ACTUAL SALT WATER becomes COLDER than the ACTUAL ICE. 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.
