    A cool summer idea?

    A bit more than whimsical really.
    As I need to remove my water block/ cpu and reset them, I can’t help but think about ways to boost the cooling *( with the weather warming up, ) thinking fridges here!
    So toying with the idea of extending water loop, bring in the spare fridge and kill two birds with one stone.
    Extend loop and coil it through the fridge, brill!! That then gives me somewhere close to store the Guinness ha ha.
    Cool both ways lol.*

    If you're cooling below ambient in the presence of humidity then you'll need to protect all the powered electronics from condensation (with conformal sealant, potting, coating, encapsulation, baking soda, etc). Or just buy some Midel and go for a full liquid immersion rig.

    This idea has been tried but unfortunately it does not really work. The problem is that a fridge or freezer is designed to chill static objects with finite heat, not a system which is continuously generating heat. Not only will it be mostly ineffective, the constant input of heat will cause the compressor to run at maximum duty cycle and wear it out sooner if not kill it almost immediately. I would recommend doing some google research before attempting so at least you know what you are getting into.

    Fair comment guys, thanks, it was just a random idea but I see your point about cooling below ambient,
    At least it’ll leave more room for the beer! Lol.
    *will do some research on proper chillers.

    Hi there.
    I was planning to do one thing.I have one spare cooling equipment for projector.It is completely separate unit.It has fridge compressor,which cools down coolant in special reservoir.A pump make this coolant to circulate at tenmperatures fro +10 to 2p degrees Celsius.
    If someone is interested in purchase it,I could send some photos to this forum.
    Mike.

    Yes, this *may* work because it is designed to cool hot electronics but it's going to depend on how many watts it's designed to dissipate. If it's only designed for 20w and you need it to absorb 200w you may be asking too much (for example). If it's wattage appropriate then go for it. Just make sure to take precautions against condensation.

    Note that ASUS prohibits selling on this forum. So if you want to sell it you would need to use another forum or Ebay. Thank yo

    A variety of refrigerated PC cases are available. Though they're very niche, there's always something on the market but specific products come and go all the time.
    The reason they're niche is tradeoffs - high cost, high energy consumption, sometimes high complexity. It turns out there are better ways to cool PC components with higher efficiencies, lower costs, and much lower noise (those compressors are always notoriously loud).

    That being said, some people have stuffed their entire PCs (or at least all the important parts of their PCs) into fridges. With mixed and sometimes spectacular results, both good and bad. The general summary is that the PC and/or the fridge usually doesn't keep working for too long unless investments into fortifying the hardware (and some math/engineering/research) are made. And - refrigerated PC cases aside - there basically aren't "all-in-one" kits or parts which make this sort of thing practical for most people, "DIY" watercooling kits and even TECs and LN2 pots typically offer more "drop in" options and parts to work with.
