has anyone tryed modding a mini fridge? like put the whole mobo and everything in side to keep it almost at zero? then have some fancy modded face plate for the cdroms ext? dont u think it would work.... might even be better then gettin water cooling and all the fansy stuff.... i dono just a thought
a lot of people have done that already, some even try having their water res in a fridge to chill it, stuff like that.. only thing is its not a good idea to keep your mechanics in there (i.e. CDROM) because that stuff is meant to be kept at room temp, won't work as well otherwise.

It's done before but it wont work with an average frig. Normal friges don't run continuesly... while with a PC inside you have to run it that way, this can shorten the fridge life considerably. You also have to make sure the fridge can put out a couple of hundreds of Watt to keep your system cool.
And the CDROM, HDs and FDs also need to be placed outside the fridge.
I love my Delta 60HP 7000 RPM fan that puts out more dB then CFM
How powerful is your fridge? If it's a good freezer then we can start talking, otherwise you're not gonna go far with this. Most fridges don't have high wattage food inside that they have to keep cold, if you catch my drift =)
