well...in theory you would either need a dehumidifier, or make the thing a sealed system...or you could just put a but load of silica packets in there..

thats what i was thinking.....i think a combonation of all 3 would be most realistic, i mean, it takes very little water to cause huge problems. I have a P4 2ghz thats either going to get flogged or Oc'd.....i think i might try this idea

Well the thing with most big fridges is they use coolant which is usually the safe non conductive kind(just a little bit toxic sometimes but not much. Silica packets or some instant coffee would absorb the moisture, Beer fridge PC now that would be nice, something to keep my guiness cold nothing worse than warm guiness.

i agree....i'd rather drink motor oil than warm guiness....

if you wanted to get really special....you could set up an alluminum can autoloader with a vacuum pump system....and h ave a pipe coming from the fridge up through the desk....press one button and the beer comes shooting up the tube....wouldn't even have to open the box..

haha, well i was just going to rip the door off and seal it to the side of the computer, wire a dehumidifier in the other side, turn on the dehumidifier for a few hours, then turn on the fridge, then the pc and drink my guinness from the other fridge.

Im thinking instead of breaking the fridge and sticking it on a case, keeping the fridge and turn it into a case, i am thinking one of the carslberg minifridges with the glass window they are real fridges so the inside is bigger because the sides arent as thick. Im thinking it qould be quite cool only difficulty is getting holes in the side to pass through the cabling for the gfx card and getting the backplate on without causing to much damage to the fridge and rupture something.

Sarah michelle geller does not count, you keep the pictures of women for the work area not the work itself its just not done.

you could cut a rectangular hole in the side of the fridge, big enough for the monitor cable to pass through...then put a rubber membrane on the inside of the fridge with a slit in it that you could pass the cable through...thereby sealing the hole behind it.

That would work, the backplate would probably be a bit more akward though, but you could use the rubber membrane to seal it in a similar fashion i suppose, what would work quite well would be a drawer style fridge with the backplate and gfx card coming from the front, that would work quite well. Ive just not seen a drawer fridge in a small size in a long time.
