How cold is too cold

Is there any dangers in running a cpu at this kind of temperature. I can get it lower than this in the early hours of the morning ( 4 degrees the lowest I've seen ). Only need to worry about condensation at subzero?

Phase/DICE/TEC is much, much colder than that. Also, condensation is more an effect of changing temps (as in ambient/vs cold) If the entire environement is the same temp, you should be OK.
I believe you only run into condensation problems when your cpu is below the dew point. The dew point is the lowest temp that air can be cooled so that the water vapor will condense to liquid. So stay above that and you should be good.
Water vapor that naturally condenses on cold surfaces into liquid water is called dew. Water vapor will normally only condense onto another surface when the temperature of that surface is cooler than the temperature of the water vapor.

No. There's nothing dangerous about those temps.
