Default Mini fridge.. fan.. overclocking?

hahaha, weird title.. but as it says, i've just recently obtained a minifridge that runs at 30 degrees farenheit... what i wanna do, is shove my motherboard, just outside of it, and run a fan in the cooler, blowing out to my mobo... i don't see this being harmful, but i guess i would like other opinions before i do so!!!! would definitely be awesome to use chilled air

and yes.. the minifridge is in my room for maximum laziness

Sounds good in theory, but the power it will take would not be worth it. The fridge will not be even close to 30 with the door open all the time. You would be better off to WC your setup and then putting the radiator inside the fridge. Still, this would take a lot of power. Either way you will probably be putting out more heat from your pc than the fridge can cool with the door open or shut.

convert the fridge into a case, leaving room for soda next to your hard drive.

Well, for something like that it will work. I just open the window and cooled my bedroon down when I ran a high OC, but then again it is 6 degrees outside right now.

Pics, need to get some updated pics with my TRUE and other fans.

Just stick the motherboard inside the fridge. with it OFF. let the temps level out then go for your overclocking runs.

Ya, this weather is ****ing me off. Its like 10F outside, and around 50-55 inside since my heater doesnt work. I cant even go for high clocks because of my stupid motherboard being dead. I hate this current board.

Wouldn't you have condensation problems inside of a mini-fridge?

Plus most fridges go into defrost mode now and then and would get everything inside wet.

lol i don't wanna put it in the fridge, cuz yes that would obviously cause condensation

i'll try this out on my old pentium 3 computer first, see how temps go, then if everything is okay for about 15-20 min i'll give this compy a go
