oh man what a tease! You read that anticipating the results he gets and the thing just blows up! Damnit! That pissed me off so I can't imagine what he went through. But yeah Trifid is right, refrigerators are meant to be able to be turned on and off so the compressor probably couldn't handle it. But still it makes for a nice experience and testability right?
Get some Hydrofluoride....only like $150 a gallon or so probably more
but that's a completely nonelectrically conductive liquid. Looks just like water except you can put your motherboard in it just fine. Then make a nice intercooler set up with a pump that drains the hydrofluoride from the tub that your mobo is sitting in...goes through an intercooler sitting in dry ice...and then have the exit of the pump..pumping the now even cooler hydrofluoride directly ontop of the CPU.
They actually did that on the screen savers and I've seen an internet article doing that except using Liquid Nitrogen for the intercooler liquid...wound up turning the hydrofluoride to gel so the liquid nitrogen was a bit TOO cold lol for that purpose anyway.
On the screensavers, when they turned the pump off that was blowing the hydrofluoride liquid directly on the CPU you'd see bubbles come off the CPU because it was instantly making that liquid boil. Pretty co0
