first...i think you can't do it because there is moisture in the air that comes form the ac i think...unless i'm thinking of a swamp cooler...this has been posted before on the forum here...look for it.

and everything you would like to know for liquid nite is like a couple below on this forum.

I've always wanted to make a case out of a small refridgerator. I think that would provide sufficient enough cooloing : )

as long as you insulate it well enough i don't think moisture would be a problem?

I think no matter how much you were to insulate the thing you would always get some kind of problem. If not at first probably over the long term.

i saw a mod of this...not quite what you're saying but they had the water-cooling run through a small ice box so that would cool down the water...it was pretty neat.

it may work...i think it's the swamp coolers that bring the moisture.

Liquid Nitrogen would make things too cool- at that temp the slightest bump can shatter almost anything.
