Step 1) get a mini fridge

Step 2) drill the proper hols to fit an ATX form factor mobo

Step 3) place mobo inside said mini fridge

Step 4) turn on computer/fridge and close lid

And there you have it, a refrigerated computer.

I am going to try this now.

Still doesn't solve condensation, need something like a Humitech panel and change it once every few months...

This wont burn out any motor. What I just posted was pretty much sticking a motherboard with all components in a fridge.

mehhhhh... I don't think it would burn it out in 4-5 years of normal use... folding I bet could reduce its lifespan quite a bit... but honestly, if your fridge gets left open it doesn't burn out the motor, just your electricity bill... the fridge in my fathers shop got left open for we figured 2 months and we didn't notice till our bill was a little high, and we thought somebody was stealing our power... but it should be fine for normal use, just remember condensation is a big deal... (fridge will be fairly noisy while you're using it tho)...

But i bet the fridge in your fathers workshop wasn't a mini-fridge, they have much weaker motors. Don't get me wrong, if you are up for it, go ahead but just so you know, you know?

You honestly might want to read up on Humitech panels, if you can get a full sized one meant for walk in refrigerators and freezers (not the tiny ones meant for regular fridges )it will do wonders.

I have a full size one I got because a family member was going to start a franchise but didn't go through with it. I didn't believe their claims that it would reduce stress on the pump and make the overall power consumption go down, but honestly it dropped my fridges use by about 20%

*just a tip* (if you decide to put a full size panel in a regular fridge (not mini fridge) don't put it between the ice box and your milk... it will turn into a slushy XD)

I think you quoted the wrong person but those look interesting, could work, but they must have a limit as to how much condensation they can take?
