    Will this work? (cool idea)


    I have a mini-fridge that i usually keep stocked full of "adult beverages". i have some extra room in the top... When i finally get my server running again, will it be ok to make a custom mount to mount everything to a shelf and let it "chill" in there?

    the only thing i'm worried about is the humidity.....


    here is what happened to my last CPU:

    and it was not overclocked!

    the huge fan i had hanging off of it apparently was too much and shorted out one of the chips on top. board is fine and everything else is OK.



    Thanks!

    *edit* grrrr.... to see the pic replace the *** with a.s.s (no periods)

    I have seen the refrigerator thing work, but you need to get the "frost free" variety, mount it correctly, and seal everything around the cables and such. You wouldn't want to use it as a fridge too, since you wouldn't want to keep opening and closing it. Basically, I would consider such a project very advanced. Good luck if you go for it, but don't complain here if something breaks
    You can probably find more on google.
