Default Computer Cooling

Just a thought but has anyone took a condenser unit from a mini-frig and used to to cool their computer?

I was wondering If anyone else had this idea and implemented it.

I think a company has invented something like that. However, I also think doing it yourself, The machine would cause condensation and ruin all of your parts. If you're really gonna get that crazy about cooling, you might as well just get water cooling.

Many people have done that. But its easier just to buy a kit.

You can buy a phase change cooler that is ready to go - keeps your CPU below freezing.
